Why She Ran: “I wanted to make some changes to what was happening out there, and I wanted to be a part of those changes.”
Her Focus: “It’s really hard to drive around and see some places that once were thriving to now be empty strip malls … So many of my constituents, when I was walking around the neighborhoods during campaign time … so many of them said, ‘So can we focus on jobs now? We really need to deal with the jobs.’”
