Where I stand on the Issues

Investing in Education

 

 

All four of my daughters went to public school. I have spent time volunteering in local schools, and watched the level of dedication by my mother as an educator in the Head Start program, and I know firsthand that a change is needed in Alabama when it comes to education programs

I will

Fight for competitive salaries for public school educators

Evaluate alternate funding streams that can provide for classroom resources, including basic supplies

Identify gaps in resources needed for  underperforming schools to do better

Support legislation that seeks out opportunities for advanced technology in public schools

Work across party lines to identify ways of addressing the current student loan crisis

 

Affordable Healthcare including Availability of Mental Healthcare

I will

 

Work with mental healthcare workers and families in the state to identify gaps in available services

Support efforts to improve health care standards that are aimed at treating aggression and violent behavior.

Support common sense prison reform, addressing  lack of mental health services and prison overcrowding issues

 

Stronger Economy and Workforce Development

Having worked hand-in-hand with small businesses and identifying ways in which they can diversify their company portfolios to increase profits and minimize risk, I recognize the need for this across the state.  I am experienced in identifying opportunities for growth and I am dedicated to helping those in need, and those who want to grow a stronger Alabama together.

I will

Facilitate open communications and cross collaborative opportunities in which business owners can voice their concerns, share lessons learned, and discuss and identify areas for growth

Fight for a balanced state budget that also  addresses the needs of our communities’ mental health programs, schools and workforce development

Work to facilitate connection with universities, large and small businesses to encourage public-private collaboration models

Work within communities and with businesses to develop ways to create a livable wage

 

Respond to technological changes that are occurring by expanding availability of workforce development opportunities in public schools
