Why are you running for office?

3 hospital closures in my district alone. We need Medicaid expansion.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
By talking to each other, having empathy, working together, and still fighting for what is right.
Who is your hero?
What are your hobbies?
Running, Muscle Cars, Bike Riding, Motorcycle Riding, Fishing and lake activities.

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
Hey! I love my plants!
