In today's current economic climate, providing relief for working families who are struggling is essential. I am a small business owner here in the District and know the challenges facing small businesses. As your State House Representative, I will continue to work to enhance our long-term economic prospects. In order to do this, we must continue to strengthen our public schools, community colleges, and universities. We must improve our public transportation system. We must continue to support small business, especially working to help them maintain health insurance coverage for their employees in light of double-digit health care inflation.
