Other facts

For the past 21 years, I’ve worked extensively in public service; my professional career has consistently involved serving the underprivileged and victimized. My work as a prosecutor, my experience as a public defender and legal services attorney, and my time as legislative counsel in the State House all inform my approach to the challenges facing the constituents of this district. I believe that issues such as education, transportation, and public safety demand a broad, systemic approach – not band-aids that avoid the hard work of finding long term solutions. Our state government should be committed to serving all citizens, especially those in need. I am firmly committed to the concept of working to serve the common good, and have built a career on the notion that advocacy to promote creative dialogue and collaboration best serves the ideals of our democratic society.
