I’ve spent my career helping young children have the early education, K-12 education and health care they need for a good start in life. My work at the Children’s Campaign and as Lt. Governor opened doors for thousands of children. My focus on early literacy in DPS led to big increases in elementary school reading scores for all groups of students across the whole district. I fought for new funding so that every school has extra mental health, social services and other interventions when their students need it. I’ll stand up to Washington if it tries to interfere in our community’s values.
