I grew up poor with a dad who was black and mom who is white. I went to war. Got out, got a job and joined my union. I went to college. I worked my butt off and oh yeah, I am a woman and am damn proud of it. In what has become the norm, by all accounts, given where I started in life, my family should be generations away from ever running for office.
But here I am.
Because if we are ever going to change the hearts and minds of politicians who sit around the table making all the decisions, then it’s time we had someone at the table who has first hand experience at how those decisions can affect your life.
If you want to help others. If you want to build your community stronger. If you want to win and make the office of Lt. Governor have more of a purpose in our Commonwealth, then I want you to join me.
