I'm a mom, wife, sister, friend, kayaker, youth group co-leader, and book-lover who has dedicated my 30-year career in the policy and nonprofit worlds to improving the lives of children through education.  Now it is time to use that experience to be a voice for children and families in Maryland.

The good news is that after doing my homework, including talking to several dozen local leaders, I am absolutely convinced I can win this race. 

Thanks to your generous donations, I was able to exceed my first fundraising goal of $25,000. But the next deadline is even more important. 

I need to raise $60,000 by April 10 to stay competitive and win this race.

The seat is currently occupied by a Republican who is anti-environment, anti-choice, anti-gun control, and no friend to public schools.  I cannot wait to replace him – and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.  

I could not – and would not – be doing this without friends like you who are stepping up in such an amazing way. Thank you.
