Issue Position: Working Families

Jan. 19

No one who works for a living should live in poverty. Improving the lives of working families is the key to building a stronger Maryland. We must enhance opportunities for working people so that all our residents can share in the benefits of economic growth. Cheryl has always stood up for working Marylanders.During her time in office and as a private citizen, she's fought for affordable housing, quality education opportunities, union representation, and universal health care.She also supports the recent $11.50 minimum wage increase in Montgomery County, because it helps local workers support their families and boosts our economy by increasing consumer demand.

Issue Position: Transportation

Jan. 19

We are all frustrated by the transportation challenges we face daily. From congestion on 270 and the Beltway, to delays on Metro's Red Line, this affects both our quality of life and our economy. Workers and businesses are losing too much valuable time and resources to gridlock. As a Montgomery County native, Cheryl remains committed to making affordable transportation options available to local residents. More flexible pricing for the ICC, new mass transit options like the Purple Line and the Corridor City Transit-way, and other options for improving transportation should be vigorously explored. Ultimately, we need smart and efficient transit solutions that reduce congestion, limit environmental impacts, and promote economic growth in Rockville and Gaithersburg.

Issue Position: Montgomery County Priorities

Jan. 19

Montgomery County is a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. We're fortunate to have terrific schools, high-quality employers, and cultural amenities that contribute to an enviable quality of life. Because of its very success, Montgomery County is often taken for granted and its needs ignored in Annapolis; it's expected to give much more than it gets. But we all know the County has changed tremendously in the past few decades, and with those changes have come new challenges. Now more than ever, we need someone like Cheryl who will look out for us in the State Senate. Cheryl was born and raised in Montgomery County and she understands our needs. She'll work to be sure that we get our fair share from the state for school improvements and other important priorities.Whether or not it's popular in Annapolis, Cheryl will always put the interests of Montgomery County first.
