Here is some of what I have learned by listening to you, the people of HD 62
We must stop cuts to our education system. We must build our public school system so that our children are blessed with the opportunities and tools they need for success. Our kids’ education and saving their teachers’ jobs is worth fighting for, and I am ready to go to battle for this most precious asset, our children.
2. STABILIZE THE BUDGET
Our budget deficit currently sits at $1.3 billion and it continues to increase. This is unacceptable. We must diversify our revenues and become less dependent on oil and gas.
3. HEALTH CARE
My grandmother has always told me that next to your relationship with God and your family your health are the most important things in your life. Oklahoma has more than 170,000 people without insurance leaving hospitals and other health care providers with the rising cost of care.
We must accept Medicaid expansion. Not to do so is frankly cruel and unjust to those who need help the most. We must send a message to Oklahomans that we care. I will do everything in my power to ensure that message of caring is sent.
4. CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
Oklahoma spends $500 million dollars a year and has the highest incarceration rate in the country and is the #1 jailer of women. We need to evaluate the elimination mandatory minimum prison sentences and evaluate steering non-violent drug offenders into rehabilitation programs instead of prison.
I will continue to meet with you and listen to you. That is my reason for running– to be your voice. You deserve this kind of representation.
I’m respectfully asking for your vote and your support.
