I am running for State Senate in the North Country because we need universal health care, stronger protections for women’s rights, stronger support for education reforms, sound economic development that meets 21st century demands and renewed efforts to protect our environment here and around the world.  Over the past 20 years, little has changed and too many individuals and communities are struggling to compete.  I will fight, from day one, for each student, employee and business owner to make the 45th Senate District the competitive region it has the potential to be.
