Our campaign was run by three people with no political experience or background: My husband Mike who had a full time job; Nick - a recent graduate from Lawrence North HS; and me. These pictures show you that we weren't a massive operation, but instead a community of hardworking volunteers who understood that we have the power to create change in our communities. Our strategy was simple: work hard and listen to the people.
Good hardworking people can do this. We need more of you to step up and run.
When I decided to run for office, everyone said this race was impossible. I heard "Move to a different district." "Change your name." "Why bother?"
I did not let that stop me.
We were focused, worked hard, and talked to thousands of people in the district. We raised a lot of money through individual donors. We reduced a historically 30+ point margin down to 10 points in a race against one of the most powerful politicians in this state.

To every volunteer who knocked on doors with us in 100 degrees, in the rain, and in the blistering cold - Thank you for believing that we have the power to change our communities through hard work, persistence, and a positive outlook.
To every young person who volunteered for your very first campaign - this is just the beginning for you. I hope to see you achieve great things in our communities and in our state. I promise to cheer for you along the way, just as you did for me.
To the daughters and sons of immigrants - We know the sacrifices our parents made to come to this great country in order to give us a better life. We know what hard work is, and we have a responsibility to continue that work for our children and for future generations to come.
To every mom I met along the way who encouraged me - Working toward a safer community and a...
We've knocked on more than 10,000 doors and visited every neighborhood in House District 88. We've held community events, political playdates, and reached voters of all ages. We did this with an incredible team of volunteers. Thank you to the amazing residents who have shared their stories and ideas on how we can move Indiana forward. I am asking for your vote on November 6th so we can start working on solutions together.
Another day focused on getting out the vote in HD88! I enjoy going back to houses and checking in on people we talked to over the summer. A couple with a newborn baby are now getting a little more sleep, one parent celebrated their son starting college, and another started a new job closer to home. And all of them have a plan to vote! 🇺🇸
