Inspiring Change
for District 2

Oklahoma’s education​ ​system​ ​is​ ​broken.​

​As​ ​a​ ​teacher​ ​the​ ​past​ ​18​ ​years,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​done​ ​my​ ​best within​ ​the​ ​system​ ​to​ ​fight​ ​for​ ​our​ ​students​ ​and​ ​teachers​ ​–​ ​to​ ​fight​ ​for​ ​our​ ​community​ ​and​ ​our future.​ ​But​ ​it​ ​has​ ​not​ ​been​ ​enough.​ ​Today,​ Oklahoma has the worst funded schools in the country.

Enough​ ​is​ ​enough.

It’s​ ​time​ ​for​ ​change.​ ​That’s​ ​why​ ​I​ ​am​ ​running​ ​for​ ​Oklahoma​ ​State​ ​Senate​ ​to​ ​represent​ ​District​ ​2 in​ ​2018.​ As​ ​state​ ​senator,​ ​I​ ​would​ ​make​ ​providing​ ​adequate​ ​funding​ ​for​ ​public​ ​education​ ​my​ ​top​ ​priority because​ ​it​ ​is​ ​the​ ​cornerstone​ ​to​ ​our​ ​communities.​ ​Not​ ​only​ ​does​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​education​ ​system​ ​lead to​ ​brighter​ ​futures​ ​for​ ​students,​ ​it​ ​also​ ​serves​ ​as​ ​the​ ​foundation​ ​of​ ​strong​ ​economic development.​ ​Quality​ ​education​ ​can​ ​have​ ​a​ ​positive​ ​impact​ ​on​ ​so​ ​many​ ​of​ ​the​ ​other​ ​issues plaguing​ ​our​ ​state,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​poverty​ ​and​ ​healthcare.

I​ ​think​ ​the​ ​voters​ ​of​ ​Rogers​ ​and​ ​Mayes​ ​County​ ​want​ ​change​ ​and​ ​I​ ​would​ ​be​ ​honored​ ​to​ ​serve them.​ ​But​ ​I​ ​need​ ​your​ ​help.​ Please consider donating (online donations coming soon) or volunteering.

Together, we can inspire change.
