Representing the citizens of the 16th legislative district in the New Jersey General Assembly is a responsibility I take very seriously. That’s why I’ve focused my energies not on the tired hyper-partisanship that gridlocks government, but on important issues, including:

  • High quality education for our children
  • Fair state funding of our public schools
  • Public pension and property tax reforms
  • Preservation of open space
  • A clean, sustainable environment
  • A more affordable New Jersey

With four children ages 15 to 20 and a disabled senior citizen mother, I am well aware of the challenges faced by every age group. With those challenges keenly in mind, I am determined to make the 16th legislative district and New Jersey a great place to live, work and retire.

In achieving this goal, we desperately need public servants who are solutions oriented, not politically motivated; public servants who, regardless of party affiliation, are committed to working with in a bi-partisan manner to improving New Jersey.

I strongly believe we must become better stewards of our democratic institutions; of our obligations, both moral and financial; of our environment; and of our world in general.

I’m not a career politician. I’m someone who seeks to serve our community in the hope of making it better.  Finally, I’m someone who strongly believes people long for a different type of leadership today – leadership that is honest, independent, fearless but humble, principled but not uncompromising, and committed to working in a bi-partisan way to get things done.

I’ve worked very hard to distinguish myself in these ways and will continue to do so.

Sincerely yours,
