I grew up surrounded by strong and capable women who had to work harder than I did to get ahead. My mom spent much of her life being told she couldn’t be an attorney. She got a law degree anyway, and is one of the best attorneys I know. My daughter is about to leave home and chart her own path. I want her to have a fair playing field as she pursues her goals.

  • A Level Playing Field for Women: I strongly support laws and policies to empower women in the 68th District and across the state. Three of the most important are implementing paid family leave, codifying equal pay for equal work, and protecting a woman’s right to choose.
