Committed to investing in public schools
In June of 2019, I was a strong supporter of Dr. Johnson's increased budget for Hamilton County Schools. Dr. Johnson's budget would have added many needed support staff for teachers and provided a 5% raise for all of our educators.
Addressing Mental Health in our jails
Sheriff's Hammond's FUSE program is a critical initiative that helps mentally inmates break the cycle and build healthy and productive lives. In January of 2019, I proposed a resolution to match $120,000 of private funds that were raised for the project.
