Top 3 Priorities If Elected

1) Get Transit in Cobb over the finish line  2) Foster collaboration between cities, Cobb County, and state of Georgia to come up with solutions to address housing affordability issues in this area.   3) Medicaid expansion/waivers. 42% of HD 41 residents have no health insurance. This is outrageous and we need to address our healthcare shortfalls. 

DO YOU SUPPORT LEGISLATION THAT WOULD PREVENT BUSINESS OWNERS AND EMPLOYERS FROM DENYING SERVICES TO LGBTQ PEOPLE AND OTHERS BASED ON THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS?

No. Ethically wrong and also patently unconstitutional.

DO YOU SUPPORT ENDING CASH BAIL FOR LOW-LEVEL OFFENSES? 

Yes.

DO YOU SUPPORT THE CREATION OF A NON-PARTISAN INDEPENDENT REDISTRICTING COMMISSION?

Yes. 

WOULD YOU SUPPORT AN ENGLISH-ONLY CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT IF IT WERE ON THE BALLOT?

No.

DO YOU SUPPORT THE RIGHT OF WORKERS TO FORM A UNION AND BARGAIN COLLECTIVELY?

Yes.  

DID YOU/DO YOU SUPPORT GUNS ON CAMPUS?

No.

DO YOU SUPPORT ELECTRICITY RATE INCREASES TO COMPLETE TWO NUCLEAR REACTORS AT PLANT VOGTLE?

No. I do, however, think we need to finish the project. It will serve us well in the long term and I believe we need alternative sources of electrical power. That said, I would have not voted for the way it was funded.

DO YOU SUPPORT CHANGING GEORGIA'S VOTING SYSTEM TO A VOTER-MARKED (PEN OR PENCIL) PAPER BALLOT WITH OPTICAL SCANNERS?

Yes. I’m also fine with electronic voting if there are paper receipts and the machines are auditable.

DO YOU SUPPORT THE EXPANSION OF EARLY VOTING?

Yes. 

DO YOU SUPPORT PUBLIC VOUCHERS BEING USED FOR PRIVATE AND/OR CHARTER SCHOOLS?

No. 

DO YOU SUPPORT MEDICAID EXPANSION OR ANOTHER GEORGIA-SPECIFIC PLAN TO EXTEND HEALTH INSURANCE TO LOW-INCOME GEORGIANS?

Yes. 

WILL YOU SUPPORT POLICIES AND LEGISLATION THAT INCREASE ACCESS TO REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE, INCLUDING ABORTION, AND OPPOSE POLICIES AND LEGISLATION THAT LIMIT OR REDUCE ACCESS TO REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE, INCLUDING ABORTION?

Yes. 

WOULD YOU SUPPORT EFFORTS TO STRENGTHEN SOCIAL SECURITY FOR CURRENT AND FUTURE RETIREES AND PUT THE PROGRAM ON A MORE STABLE FISCAL PATH?

Yes. Not sure if we will really address this at the state level.

DO YOU SUPPORT A LIVABLE WAGE OF A MINIMUM OF $15 PER HOUR?

Yes. I think this merits a lot of thorough, data-driven discussion.
