I ask for your support and prayers. Join us for a better future for Georgia’s 1st Congressional District and this great nation.

In 2008 and 2010, American voters decided that the status quo was no longer acceptable and voted for change. Unfortunately, the do-nothing Congress (led by the Republicans) and persistent partisanship in Washington continues to hinder economic recovery, jobs and national security.
Our nation’s credit rating has been downgraded. Businesses have all but stopped hiring due to the complex tax policies and regulations the U.S. government requires. Children continue to fall behind their foreign counterparts in education, especially in math and science. China and India graduate more than 10 times the number of engineers as the U.S.
Having seen the effects, and lack of action taken by incumbent Republican District 1 Rep. Jack Kingston, I have decided to take my personal concern to the next level, and run on the Democratic ticket as your next Representative for Georgia’s 1st Congressional District.
I know together we can do better, and there is much work to be done in Washington.
We must keep America moving forward and ensure that basic rights for women, children and seniors are not stripped away.
The families of coastal Georgia deserve a U.S. Congresswoman pledged to be a partner, and to end the burden that partisanship places on progress.
We must build coalitions to create jobs and keep communities and coast lines strong by investing in transportation infrastructure, ensuring that youth have access to quality education, by supporting U.S. veterans and military families, and protecting the guarantee of Medicare for seniors.
What the 1st District needs now is a leader and not a career politician like Mr. Kingston. I will work in the people’s interest; someone who will be effective and who cares about families, the disenfranchised, working individuals, our hard working military men and woman, veterans and all the citizens of Georgia.  Matters involving social issues, the environment, and the economy can all be balanced once Congress begins to work towards America’s future as opposed to self-interests.
I ask for your support and prayers. Join us for a better future for Georgia’s 1st Congressional District and this great nation.  I look forward to meeting and listening to all of you – families, veterans and working people –  from all parts of the district.  From St. Mary’s to Savannah and from Brusnwick to Jesup and Waycross, our District reflects America’s future.
Your priorities and daily issues are mine, too.  As a mother, wife, small business owner and daughter from a small, Midwest farming community, I deeply understand what challenges that families are facing.
I want to earn every vote.
