I chose to step into public service because of what I've seen as a doctor. My patients health was being affected by too many things outside the exam room. I believe a truly healthy community is one where we all do better - where good jobs, first-rate schools and access to health care are available to everyone. And while dysfunction and power games continue to dominate Congress it's in our local governments where we can bring about progressive change that makes people's lives better right now. Please join me in this work as I run for reelection to the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners.
