As Assistant Attorney General, I worked on behalf of consumers and brought fraud artists to justice; as Deputy Chief Legal Counsel to Governor Holden, I fought for the progressive values that are important to our community. Today, as State Representative, I carry on that same fight.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (50 word limit)

Through my committee assignments and political work, I am well positioned to address these issues and have been recognized as an emerging leader in these areas. I will work in a bipartisan fashion when I can + and fight political battles when I must -- to advance these important legislative causes.
