Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?
Yes, because this measure is intended to benefit children and families by giving them more access and choice regarding preschool. After working at a K-12 school, I saw the effect of preschool on the long-term success of a student’s academic career and this amendment would give broader options to parents.
What is your one big idea?
All families, particularly those living in apartments and condos, are overburdened by the high cost of living and affordable housing shortage. I advocate tax credits for families living in apartments. If families can’t afford a house and live in apartments, a tax-credit would alleviate the tax burden for middle-income families.
