Let's hold me accountable.
Before I decided to run, I committed some "political rabble-rousing" to resist a lot of downright hurtful decisions being made at the national and state level. Most recently, I wrote a letter to the Herald-Dispatch that sums up my feelings on the matter of public servants and party values. I believe West Virginians are thirsting these days for representatives who won't pull the rug out from under them.
As a new candidate for public office, I know I will be under similar scrutiny. Fair enough! I'm setting out on this campaign with a conviction not just to be honest, but to be transparent and true—true to my faith, true to West Virginia children and working families, and true to seven "unshakeable core beliefs" that I hold to personally as a Democrat.
I'll roll each of those principles out in future blog posts—not just as a way to provide you with a clearer picture of this particular woman's name on the ballot, but also to hold myself accountable as a candidate—and a District 17 Delegate—you can count on.
