The Campaign Kicks Off
June 26, 2020
I am a mom, a Marketing Manager, and a citizen who wants to make a difference in Indiana. I am running as the Democratic candidate for Indiana State House of Representatives for District 13. I believe that the best way to prepare our communities for future challenges is to have representatives who work together to put the needs of people over political agendas. Our General Assembly works best when there is a balance of differing opinions. A supermajority silences common ground. We must pull from the strength that comes from discussing diverse ideas. Let ALL the voices of our community help shape a better future.
