I will work to ensure our infrastructure (from our crumbling bridges, to our failing water systems, to our roads which are falling apart, to our broadband internet access which is unavailable in many communities) is finally addressed and is no longer a broken campaign promise of failed politicians. I will also work every day to ensure our education system is fully funded, our teachers have the resources they need, and that our public school systems are the world class, the type of education systems which make our children want to raise their own children here.
