What Your Support Means to Me *UPDATED*

February 1, 2016

The Democratic Primary is just one month away. I’m honored to have the support of my colleagues in the Legislature, as well as many local leaders who have offered their endorsement of the work I’ve done for District 137.

None of this would have happened if I didn’t have your personal support. The reception I’ve gotten from voters as I go door-to-door in the district has been phenomenal and it is all due to the strong support shown by friends, constituents, and neighbors who believe in what we’re doing. It’s not too late to get involved and help us cross the finish line on March 1st.
