What office are you running for?
Kentucky State Senate District 17
With which party are you running for office?
November 3rd, 2020
Why are you running for office?
I chose to run for the Kentucky State Senate because I’m tired of the posturing and gridlock caused by career politicians with an agenda as opposed to working to help the citizens they are supposed to serve.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Poverty is the overarching theme that touches all other issues. To address these systematic injustices we must support and fund quality public education, good jobs and a living wage for our workers and their families, and we must have affordable and accessible healthcare.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We can’t be afraid to have honest conversation around the issues where we have common ground.
Who is your hero?
My Grandma. She loves everyone and puts others first, always.
What are your hobbies?
Computer science, fishing, football
What is the most recent book you read?
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
While I don’t have any children of my own, I have a lot of nieces and nephews that I spend as much time as I can with, and their welfare and futures are a big part of why I am running for public office.

What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?
I wish people would ask me why I think I can win.
The answer is our country was founded by citizens who believed in a government of, by, and for the people, and we have forgotten that. I’m here to prove that it’s still true.
