Thank you for visiting my page. It is important that you are informed about your community and I appreciate you stopping by to find out about all the hard work I have put forth to make our communities a better place to live. As a school bus driver I lived paycheck to paycheck while I saw firsthand the deterioration of my community from years of neglect. I knew that career politicians were not going to stand up for working families like mine, so I ran for public office to give us a voice.
I am proud of my record while representing you in Suffolk County. Our nation has seen the worst recession since the Great Depression, but here in Suffolk County I have successfully controlled spending and held the line on general fund property taxes every single year. I’ve made it a priority to crack down on illegal housing and passed the toughest laws in the nation that protect our children from sex offenders. I also made protecting our precious environment a major focus by preserving hundreds of acres of open space and championing a sewer district in Mastic, Shirley, and Mastic Beach. Lastly, I fulfilled a promise by constructing a Skate Park for our kids.
I am most proud of my husband Steve and son Sean for their service to our country. Without our military men and women like them we wouldn’t have our democracy and freedoms here at home--which is why I have made support for veterans a major priority.
I want to continue to fight for our families and I am asking for your support and vote in 2013.
