These are Serious Times that Require Serious Solutions

For Our Children:

EDUCATION

  • A strong public education that leads to greater pathways of opportunity by Diversifying the Educational Landscape

    • I will work diligently for Head Start, Pre-K, K-12 and University availability and accessibility.  I will also work and promote Career and Technical Education (CTE ) because it may be a better pathway for some of our students.

  • Better pay and benefits for our retained and recruited educators

    • One-third​ of Tennessee's teachers are retirement eligible NOW. Tennessee has to address this present need by creating a more efficient and effective  licensing model. 

    • I will stand up for teachers and education by holding the Governor and our Legislators to their word.  When they commit to giving our teachers a raise they should Honor their Word
       

  • Diversify the Educational Landscape

    • I will work diligently for Head Start, Pre-K, K-12 and University availability and accessibility.  I will also work and promote Career and Technical Education (CTE ) because it may be a better pathway for some of our students.

For Our Families:

HEALTHCARE

  • Tennessee MUST Expand availability to affordable and accessible medical choices

    • Only 4 of the 8 counties in District 26 have local hospitals.​

    • By the General election date 300,000+ Tennesseans will be in the insurance coverage gap.

    • The lack of available, affordable healthcare is especially challenging for the rural constituent.
       

  • Over 65% of Tennesseans favor expanding MEDICAID

    • I will fight for the expansion of MEDICAD because it is what Tennesseans want.

    • MEDICAD expansion would address many of the negative effects of COVID-19 and Tennessee's  spike in the uninsured due to the loss of employer sponsored healthcare.
       

  • Expand broadband to connect our Rural communities to 21 century HealthCare

    • 21 Century Healthcare is no longer a luxury for rural Tennessee it is the Necessary Life Line for Quality Affordable HealthCare. Tele Health will not be functional in the rural areas without High Speed Broadband internet access

    •  I will champion the expansion of broadband for my rural district and all of Tennessee

For Our Community:

RURAL JOBS

ECONOMY

  • Meet infrastructure needs to build economic growth

    • I will fight to make District 26's Memphis Regional Mega Site ready for industry.   

  • Expand broadband access to attract new industries

    • Covid-19 has caused more jobs to move from the corporate office to the home office.  This ability to work from home is keeping many people employed.
      Rural Tennessee is left behind once again without expanding High Speed Broadband Internet access

    • I will promote the expansion of High Speed Broadband Internet to industry and the home.
       

  • Better jobs mean better HealthCare.​
     

  • Better jobs mean better Schools where our children learn
