Advocating for Public Health in our Communities
If you had told me a few years ago that I would become an elected official or a Congressional candidate, I would have never believed you. I am not a career politician or an attorney - I'm a scientist and a mother who identified a problem in my community a few years ago and I had to use my expertise to help. Here's the story about what happened next.
In 2014, I discovered that kids were getting sick and some were dying of rare pediatric cancers across the New Hampshire Seacoast.
I was horrified. As a mom and as a trained scientist, I knew we needed an investigation. Two years after I reported it, the State of New Hampshire finally admitted there was a double pediatric cancer cluster in a five-town area of the seacoast. When the state dragged its heels on my recommendations to test the water and soil of affected homes, I notified the press and we started a fight for those families that continues today.
After being elected to the state legislature in 2016, I saw how my problem-solving approach as a scientist helped bridge gaps and bring people together on environmental policy-making and many other issues. Now I need your help to do the same in Congress. Read More ->

On the Issues
Justice is the salvation of Democracy. I will fight for economic, gender, racial, social, criminal and environmental justice in Washington.
Healthcare is a basic human right; every citizen, regardless of health or economic status, deserves full access to high-quality healthcare. Health is key to overall well-being and economic stability for all. The only way to solve our national healthcare crisis is to expand Medicare to all.
Every American has a right to clean air and clean water. In Congress, I will continue to fight lobbyists, the administration, and special interests to safeguard and reform regulations and policies meant to prevent cancer and chronic illness.
We must move forward, not backward. I will work to transform this country into a nation that affirms the value of people regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation.
I will fight for at least a $15 minimum wage and for a tax code that works for the 99% of us—not just for corporations.
I will fight to expand Social Security to lift Americans out of poverty, let people retire with dignity, and take care of our veterans and disabled citizens and their families.
