I’m running for two reasons: I want to make our government work better for us, and I believe our incumbent State Senator is fundamentally out of step with our district.
I am a mom, a registered nurse, and a former small business owner. I never thought I would get involved in politics, but when my daughter suffered a debilitating accident I realized that our politics as usual is broken. Too many people’s calls go unanswered when they contact their elected officials. Too many people are suffering from high healthcare costs and underfunded schools. And now, with our fundamental rights under attack by the extreme right, too many politicians are staying silent instead of standing with their constituents.
I got in this race to uplift people in need, to make government work better for working families, and to use my experience in business and healthcare to make positive changes for our community. All of that is not possible, though, if we continue voting for politics as usual.
I want to be clear: I did not get in this race just because our State Senator is anti-choice and anti-LGBTQ+. That said, my opponent’s stances on those topics are completely out of step with our district, and they are a pure manifestation of what I believe is harmful about the status quo. When Roe v Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, Senator Timilty was silent. When the Trump administration tried to defund our reproductive health clinics, Senator Timilty was the only Democrat in the Senate who supported his efforts. When gay rights were being legalized in Massachusetts, Timilty was a staunch opponent of that progress.
Records matter. Words matter. Senator Timilty has been on the wrong side of reproductive healthcare and LGBTQ+ issues for a long time, and we deserve answers. Yet Senator Timilty has never explained his votes. He does not respond to constituents' inquiries about those topics, and he rarely does interviews.
At a time when our rights are under attack, we should be able to count on our State Senator to stand up for us. Unfortunately, as of right now, we cannot. That is not a government that is working for the people.
On the other hand, I will work to make changes in the system so it works for ALL people. I have spent months knocking on doors and speaking to you, the people. I spent my life running a business where I spoke to dozens of people a day, listening to new perspectives and stories. I am a registered nurse, where my job is to help those in need regardless of if I agree with them or not.
I believe our best days are ahead of us. Healthier, safer, cleaner communities are possible, but only if we choose to reject politics as usual. Please join my campaign and please vote for me in the Democratic primary on September 6th. Thank you!
