The beautiful District 12 runs through Baltimore and Howard counties. You may live in this district if you live in Arbutus, Lansdowne, Halethorpe, Catonsville, Baltimore Highlands, Ilchester, Elkridge, Ellicott City, or Columbia. To find out if you are a resident of District 12, type in your address here.

I was born and raised in Baltimore County, and have settled down here to raise the next generation of my family. I'm running to ensure that the values of the citizens of our district are represented fully in Annapolis.

I'm running for State Delegate because I have ideas. I see inequity in our system, and I want to fix it. In Columbia, we have some of the best schools in the country, with excellent programs that do everything from stimulate children artistically to addressing special needs, schools with energy efficient lighting-even some of our aging schools in Howard County are aging well. In southwest Baltimore County, in the exact same district, there are a lot of challenges and opportunities. I'll address this more in the Education section.

My ideas go beyond Education. Education is certainly one of our most important and immediate concerns, as it is the bedrock of opportunity for one's future. I have ideas to help domestic abuse victims, I have ideas for places in government we can roll back regulations to achieve better opportunities and outcomes in education and in business, I have ideas to make our roads safer.

These ideas shape my candidacy and will serve as the foundation of a better future for our district and for Maryland. I am prepared to introduce these ideas as legislation from the moment I'm elected and fight for them throughout my service to my constituents.

Additionally, as your public servant I will maintain an open-door policy, and I will be easily reachable.

I understand that we don't all have the same politics throughout our district. With the way our lines are drawn, we are diverse in some of our values. However, we are united in loving Maryland and loving our families, and wanting the best for our children's futures. Regardless what end of the political spectrum you are on, I will work tirelessly to ensure that your voice is heard, that you feel valued, and I will be transparent in my votes. I will remain active in our communities throughout the interim; you will not know me as a once-every-four-years politician.

I believe in true public service- where I will serve as a true leader, and where you know that I value you as a constituent.
