- ESTABLISH SPENDING PRIORITIES I will work with you to determine State spending priorities. We can no longer borrow funds for pet political projects that do not increase direct economic benefit to citizens.
- PROTECT OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS Hartford continues to erode the rights of citizens under the second amendment. As the wife of a retired law enforcement officer and a law-abiding citizens that has experienced the first-hand the barriers to obtaining a conceal carry permit, I am committed to repealing laws that infringe upon our second amendment rights.
- FULLY SUPPORT HEALTHCARE I will stop the attack on our health care systems. Requiring hospitals to pay huge taxes while reducing the funds available to help provide healthcare for our most vulnerable citizens is a recipe for disaster. The quality of healthcare is jeopardized and our friends and neighbors are losing their jobs at an alarming rate.
- ENCOURAGE BUSINESS I pledge to support a common sense approach to loosen regulations on small business to encourage and support development and job creation. I have a background in economic development and will help to create a positive environment for business.
- CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM Hartford continues to treat the lack of economic opportunity, quality education, and mental health as a Police Issue. Supporting local, non-profits is the best way to create communities that identify and solve their own problems.
