What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children?

I believe in supporting the foster care system. These children are the victims and yet receive the least amount of services.

Education is also essential and must be made a priority. Students can not grow up to be productive members of society without it. I plan to provide more resources and opportunities for schools to expand their vocational programs to those students who do not have a desire for higher education.

What have you done to support children prior to this election?

I am an educator. I have educated many children. I once was a foster parent and have a child that is adopted from foster care.

What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected? 

I support changes for criminal justice reform. I’d like to see non violent offenders go through required programs to help rehabitate them rather than send them to our over crowded prisions. Let’s offer the services these non violent offenders need to break the cycle they have been trapped in for generations and help build strong families.
