Why do you seek election?

I decided to run for the House of Delegates because our current delegate is not addressing the needs of our district and state. These include transportation, education, gerrymandering and the environment. I believe that we can solve these issues if we work together consistently. I will devote myself to working in the General Assembly to address these needs.


What makes you the best candidate?

I am the best candidate because of my experience bringing diverse communities together to accomplish many things for our district – after-school tutoring, family support, encouragement of first responders and teachers. I have worked in my 40 years of ministry with many people of different languages, races, economic strata and religions.


What ranks as the most important issue facing the 2018 General Assembly and how do you plan to address it?

The most important issue facing the General Assembly is strengthening education by supporting excellent teachers, providing universal pre-k education, reforming SOL’s, and increasing technical and vocational education. Teachers and their support staff should make enough salary to live in this area and be included in the decision-making process.


Please, describe the most difficult challenge you’ve faced in a leadership position and your response to that situation.

The most difficult situation has been leading an association of churches who have different approaches, beliefs, priorities, and practices. I listened to their concerns, included them in the leadership, and led them to focus on things they had in common. Together we strengthened churches, started 20 new congregations, began ministries to families at risk and the homeless, and participated in mission trips to all parts of the world.
