Issue Position: Access to Healthcare & A Women's Right to Choose

Jan. 1, 2018

Access to healthcare should be a right and not a privilege. And every woman should have the freedom to make the decision about their own health. While Maryland is ahead of many other states, there is still more we can do. If elected, I will: Work to ensure all Marylanders have access to affordable and quality medical care.Expand access to mental health services.Fight to preserve a woman's right to choose.Ensure continued access to reproductive healthcare and education.

Issue Position: Improved Transit and Infrastructure

Jan. 1, 2018

Traffic is suffocating Montgomery County. Metro is in disarray. We need to reduce commuting times and protect the environment by providing better transit alternatives. A reliable transit and infrastructure system are key to a strong economy and a healthy environment. Unfortunately, our region is struggling with traffic and a rail system that needs more support. For Montgomery County to continue to grow we need to do better and move beyond the old-fashioned model of constantly expanding roads. Traffic is suffocating our communities and decreasing our quality of life through long commuting times, increasing rates of asthma and other respiratory diseases, and contributing to global warming. If elected, I will work to: Reduce traffic congestion, commuting times, and local air pollution by increased support for electric and hybrid vehicles, Metro, local bus service, bicycle lanes, and pedestrian-friendly planning.Provide dedicated funding and improved governance for Metro.Push for interconnected transit networks so cars are not the only viable option for commuters across the state.

Issue Position: Health and the Environment

Jan. 1, 2018

Maryland is not immune from the environmental disasters that have affected Texas, Florida, and Flint, Michigan. As the catastrophic impacts of climate change, such as increasingly severe storms and flooding, become more obvious and costly, we should focus on policies that make Maryland a leader in creating a sustainable future. We must strengthen regulations to keep our air and water clean and improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. Our environment, health, and economic future depend on it. If elected, I will work to: Improve monitoring, public information, and standards for air and water quality.Promote investment in sustainable infrastructure, like renewable energy, green schools, mass transit, and green government procurement.Support state-wide achievement of the Paris Agreement's goals through strong measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, policies that promote investment that builds resilience to climate change, and continue to improve the health local streams and rivers as well as the Chesapeake Bay.Promote fossil fuel divestment state-wide.Create new green jobs in growth industries such as geothermal, wind, and solar power and energy efficiency.
