Priority Issues:

My entire life, I have fought for the underdog with a commitment to doing what's right.

I helped to build a successful small business from the ground up that created good, local jobs.

As a family law attorney, I help the most vulnerable members of our community, including children and the disabled.

As a parent with a child on the autism spectrum, I've fought against one-size-fits-all education standards.

As Town Councilwoman, I fought to keep Ballston town tax-free my entire eight years.

And as your next Assemblywoman, I will always do what's right:

· Fight for lower property taxes, so middle class families can keep more of their hard-earned money

· Oppose free college tuition for illegal immigrants and convicts, while increasing financial aid for college students

· Repeal Common Core and return control to our local schools

· Support term limits

· Support real ethics reforms to clean up corruption in Albany

· Across the board tax cuts and reduce regulatory burdens on businesses so our economy can grow

· Protect and restore our Second Amendment rights
