I’ve spent most of my adult life in the 10th District. From my childhood on a farm in Yale, high school in Utica, and currently living in Lexington, to travelling the Thumb for fun — I love the 10th District. I’ve met people from every walk of life working to make their communities stronger by working together. Most of the time, politics has had nothing to do with it. I’d like to represent that reality. I have strong convictions, but I’m always open to talk, to find common-ground and do it in a respectful way that should never seem old-fashioned.
