Together for Tennessee
Greetings! I’m glad you’re here.
Our 2018 campaign for the Tennessee State House District 20 inspired voters all around district. Blount County had the 2nd highest voter turnout in the state! By giving people a choice and engaging our neighbors on the issues, we brought people together, moving the district 10 points to the left. In 2020 we will close the gap by uniting Blount County around our common values.
I’m centering this campaign around you, not me, not the lobbyists, and definitely not the Nashville politicians.
I’m running because I care about Blount County and all of the people in this county and state. I encourage you to use this website as a means to reach out to us about your vision for the future of Blount County and Tennessee. I am happy to share some of my ideas, as well as some issues that concern me, but I want to hear from you.
I understand that the current economy isn’t working equally for everyone. Blount County deserves a representative who will champion a living wage, affordable housing, worker’s rights, a transition toward renewable energy, and protections for our unique ecosystem.
I have also seen how expensive and inaccessible healthcare has become. I worry about my neighbors not being able to afford their prescriptions. Under my priorities section, you will learn more about why I will push for Medicaid Expansion on day 1. It’s the least we can do to ensure that our communities get the care they need.
Lastly, I am concerned that Tennessee lags behind in education spending, coming in at 45th in the nation. It’s offensive that we refuse to prioritze our children and teachers in the state budget. I commit to work for fully funded public schools and higher teacher pay by fixing the funding formula that everyone, even Nashville, acknowledges is broken.
So, I invite you to join our effort. Sign up for our newsletter. Follow us on social media. Volunteer with the campaign. Consider donating if you can. We’re going to make history in 2020 by going for the win, but we can’t do it without your support!
