 POLICY SOLUTIONS 

As our State Representative, I'm focused on supporting our working families, seniors, K-12 students, young people, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people of color. 

Mt. Pleasant, Valley, and Elmhurst are diverse communities and it is important that all our neighbors receive the representation they deserve. We will not leave anyone behind!

PROTECTING AND EXPANDING HEALTHCARE

No one in our community should have to worry about whether or not they can afford to visit the doctor. Unfortunately, I have spoken with hundreds of our neighbors who have shared personal stories about their medical debt or inability to visit their primary care provider because of how expensive healthcare is. 

 

I believe healthcare is a human right and I am going to fight so all our neighbors can receive the treatment they deserve, regardless of their economic background. 

As your State Representative, I will unapologetically advocate for:

A FAIR ECONOMY FOR EVERYONE

We deserve a fair economy that allows everyone to earn a living wage, achieve economic mobility, and live with dignity. For too long, wealthy people and large institutions have gotten their way with state policy, winning tax-cuts and special favors. Meanwhile, our middle-class families, working families, and low-income communities are struggling due to the rising costs of living and stagnant wages.

SAFE AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING

All our neighbors deserve a safe, healthy, and affordable home. Unfortunately, the costs of rent and housing continue to increase across our communities. Throughout our neighborhood, I have spoken to families who are concerned about being displaced from their homes because of the growing costs.

This is a common trend as more than 35% of RI households are considered “housing cost-burdened” (this means they are spending more than one-third of their income on housing). 

 

Housing affects all aspects of one’s life and our lack of affordable housing is an issue we must urgently address. Everyone deserves to live in a safe home they can afford!

As your State Representative, I will unapologetically advocate for:

INVESTING IN PUBLIC EDUCATION

All our students deserve a high-quality education, a safe learning environment, mental health services, and teachers that are paid well. As a state, we have to further invest in the future of our Providence Public School students. I am proud to stand with education professionals, teachers, students, and their families.

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

As the “Ocean State” we should be leading the fight to combat climate change and protect our environment. If we do not begin to urgently address climate change now, we will begin to experience extreme weather events such as droughts, severe storms, and flooding — we cannot allow this to happen.
