The Opioid Problem
I BELIEVE THAT ...
The epidemic of drug addiction is tearing at the fabric of too many Hoosier communities. Indiana’s opioid overdose death rate has quadrupled since 1999. Law Enforcement is doing its best, but we cannot arrest our way out of this problem.
The state has to design more programs to help the addict, both through the Court system and the State Health Department.
I will work to attack Indiana’s opioid epidemic by mustering state and local agencies to track, investigate and prosecute pill mills and dealers, and prevent and treat addiction.
I BELIEVE THAT...
Public schools are the center of urban and rural communities, alike. And Republicans have put their promise in jeopardy. Indiana is mired in a teacher shortage crisis. I currently volunteer in a local elementary school and have volunteered for a high school speech team in the past. I have seen firsthand what dedication teachers have for the students.
I will work to secure fair and adequate funding for public schools to ensure access to a balanced curriculum for all students and ensure access to highly effective teachers.
I will work to foster an environment of trust that embraces great teachers and encourages the best and brightest to enter the teaching profession.
I BELIEVE THAT...
Public schools anchor Indiana communities. Public schools are the spark that ignites the curiosity of Hoosier children and are their ticket to a promising future.
The state is trying to run two school systems in Indiana. Voucher schools have taken away millions from our local public schools. It’s time to focus on what’s best for student learning again.
I will work to end the practice of Hoosier taxpayer dollars funding private or for-profit schools.
This campaign isn't about what I want to do; it's about what is best for Wayne County and its citizens. I'll gladly welcome all suggestions and comments. Simply fill out the form below, and I will get back with you soon.
