WELCOME DEMOCRATS - INDEPENDENTS - REPUBLICANS
I have something in common with every category above, and my background and training as a therapist means I can work to find common ground. I value my intellectual independence, and consider myself to be a thoughtful, fair-minded, and strong person.
What drives me is a vision of New Jersey as a refreshed and renewed Garden State, where people live together in basic harmony and prosperity, freely pursuing their potential and happiness under laws that are sensible and fair.
I'm Democratic when it comes to protection of the vulnerable and truly needy.
To me, "liberty and justice for all" is not just a saying - but a key ideal.
But I also agree with key values of conservatism, the importance of work and personal responsibility, and the need for limited, efficient government. I count many Republicans as friends and I value their opinions.
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm an independent thinker, who takes each situation for what it is and needs. I try to bring fresh energy to every situation I face, because my goal is to bring value wherever I go, help solve problems, and do what I can to make life healthier, happier, safe and free.
I care deeply about our state and its people, and am beholden to no one.
For these reason I believe I would be good in the Assembly.
