Mississippi students deserve an education that prepares them to be global citizens. It is my goal to ensure that all students of District 98 can attain fair and affordable education, and that educators get the pay and support they deserve inside and outside of the classroom.
Mississippi families shouldn't have to wonder if their next paycheck will be enough to keep food on table, a roof over their head, and cover medical expenses. They deserve to paid enough to ensure their families financial wellness and stability.
Zip codes and train tracks shouldn't determine whether Mississippi families feel safe in their communities. Mississippi families and their community law enforcement deserve to be supported in keeping their communities safe from careless crimes that evokes fear.
