My goal is to protect all the citizens of Wake County, placing public safety over politics. I have always championed school safety and mental health resources for our children. I wish to continue that passion for school security by increasing protection at our public schools and mentoring our youth. I also believe that our senior citizens deserve the utmost respect and should be looked after whenever possible. This is why I would like to protect seniors with an automated calling system, which will provide daily welfare checks and community engagement.  

 I am passionate about criminal justice reform and breaking the cycle of criminality. I would implement higher education training opportunities and job fairs within the Wake County Jail, providing inmates with an opportunity for change. I believe in government transparency and accountability, which requires elected officials to follow through with the needs of the community. I would implement policy changes to curb discriminatory practices and reduce criminal recidivism.
