Here is her position on just 2 important issues:
Our Aging Population
According to the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging, the county’s population of older adults is expected to double over the next 15 years. Financial security, quality, affordable healthcare, nursing home costs, transportation, and end of life care are among the top issues for seniors.
As the program manager of the Adult Guardianship Assistance Project I get a firsthand look at how these issues play out not only for the aging, but also for their caregivers. Unfortunately I am not seeing the golden years so golden. I greatly respect the contribution Maryland seniors have made to this great state and we owe it to them to make their retirement years the best possible. If elected I will work to ensure that we are prepared to provide programs and services to ensure the best quality of life with the most independence possible for our seniors.
The economic impact of quality education is undisputable. Good schools increase home values, encourage new business, and create a skilled workforce — all of which ensure a strong economy. Maryland is a nationally recognized leader in public education. From 2009 to 2013, Maryland schools ranked first in the nation according to Education Week’s National Education rankings. But in 2016, we fell to fifth place. Current funding levels fall short on for new programs, new teachers, and teacher pay increases. Our schools are struggling with oversized classrooms and underpaid teachers, both of which are contributing to an exodus of good teachers leaving for better working conditions in other counties. Therefore, it is imperative that we adequately fund our public schools, specifically Anne Arundel County where funding has not kept up with neighboring counties.
