Candidate Statement

For the past seven years, a group of turncoat Democrats (the Independent Democratic Conference) colluded with State Senate Republicans and let them block legislation important to the people of District 11. Sadly, our current State Senator has been a member of this group of turncoat Democrats since 2014.

I have signed a pledge to caucus only with the Senate Democrats, where I can earnestly champion the progressive legislation this district and our state so critically needs, in light of the current White House administration.
