You might know me as the woman who was fired for flipping off the Presidential motorcade. That story has been told many times nationally and internationally.  And while it may be the most public display of my political opinion and activism, I have been deeply involved in the Loudoun County community for nearly 20 years.  

The majority of our county voted for Hillary Clinton. The majority voted for Ralph Northam.  It's clear the values of the Trump Administration are not our values. And I believe it's time those values are represented on our Board of Supervisors.

Those who know me, know that I am not one to sit idle. Whether it’s standing up for a cause, such as our First Amendment rights to peacefully protest the policies of the Trump administration, or working to ensure our children and teachers are given every opportunity to succeed, I do not back down when I see something is not right.

And now is one of those times. Over the last eight years, the Algonkian District has been represented by a supervisor, who has repeatedly voted against the interests of so many in our area by slashing school funding, allowing irresponsible development, siding against sensible transportation solutions and putting partisanship above governing. I can't sit by and allow this to go on for four more years.

That is why I have decided to run for Algonkian District Supervisor in the 2019 election.  Because I believe change starts at the local level. 

If you live in the Algonkian District, you may know me through my affiliation, work or volunteer activity with:

·       Horizon Elementary School (classroom parent, classroom volunteer, PTA)

·       The Algonkian Running Club (co-founder, run leader)

·       River Crest Riptide Swim Team (sponsorships, social media, and volunteering)

·       Boy Scout Troop 956 & Girl Scouts (chaperone, badge counselor, Board of Review member)

·       Dominion High School sports teams

·       Galilee United Methodist Church

·       LA Fitness, Gold's Gym, Inner Power Yoga, LifeTime Fitness (instructor)

·       Loudoun Symphony String Workshop (albeit many, many years ago)

·       Political campaigns (Andrew Resnick for Supervisor, Jennifer Wexton for Congress)

The above list gives you an indication of my devotion to our community.  As a working single mom of two teenagers, I have struggled with paying the bills, fighting traffic to get to work and not having enough hours in the day.  But as Hillary Clinton says, if not now, when?  

I believe it is time for honesty and transparency in local government.  It’s time for a supervisor who works with the school board instead of cutting the budget by nearly $15 million, and nearly $100 million over the past eight years. It’s time to plan smarter for growth as we add 3,000 students to our schools each year and 11,000 new residents.

Loudoun County is one of the most prosperous counties in the country.  It requires a government that is forward thinking and visionary in it’s approach to finding creative solutions to the challenges that come with rapid growth and development. It is time for a change.

Be a part of it. If not now, when?

LOCO Board Should Support ERA


We are off to a great start!  I can't thank you enough for your support. It means so much to me that supporters across the nation have come forward to make a donation to my campaign.  

Always know, one of the main reasons I am running in 2019 is because Loudoun County values do not match the values of the Trump administration or the weak Republicans that refuse to do what's morally right.  This week's treatment of Dr. Blasey Ford is a perfect example.  Everything starts locally if we want to affect change.  

Here's an example!

Since my announcement I have canvassed to drum up support for Loudoun County to include the the Equal Rights Amendment on its legislative agenda that it sends to Richmond.  Our county is in a unique position to send a message to Richmond that we want Virginia to be the 38th state to ratify the ERA and add specific language to our Constitution that prevents discrimination based on sex.

I also attended this week's Board of Supervisors meeting where this was considered and many people spoke in favor of adding the ERA to our Board's legislative agenda.  The woman I am running against left the meeting for a family emergency before the vote took place and it was eventually voted down.  We will have another chance next month. I asked my opponent at an event today if she could support putting the ERA on the agenda and she refused to answer me. I hope in October she supports it.

I can promise that when I am on the board, there will be no question about where I stand on women's issues.  If it still is an option, I will vote yes on including the ERA on the Board of Supervisor's agenda. For all the women in our nation like Dr. Blasey Ford, we need more women in office locally, in statehouses and in Congress who support efforts like the ERA.

Please share my CrowdPac page and ask your friends to donate.  It's a looong road to November 2019 and my opponent already has $155,000 in the bank.
