One of my top priorities as a State Representative will be to adequately fund education from pre-K through College. Education funding must be stabilized. It must be held harmless in the budget process, because we must invest, not disinvest in our children's future. As a mother of two teenage daughters, I understand how critically important it is to create an environment that will prepare them to compete globally. We need our children ready to step into the jobs created in our new economy. Our success as a community, a state and a nation rests with how we educate future generations.
