Tell Us About Yourself. 

I am 24 years old, and was born and raised in the Williamsport, Pennsylvania area. I am a paralegal, a mom, a student, and a lover of all things political.

 

What Does Being A "Centrist" Mean To You, And Why Did You Get Involved? 

To me, being a Centrist is all about compromise. Though people may not be like-minded, they should still be able to come together in order to achieve the best solutions to problems.

What Is A Policy Issue You Are Passionate About And Why?

I am passionate about the environment and policies impacting it. It is one of the most important issues of our time, and if we do not take the correct steps to preserve it, it is our children and grandchildren who will be paying the price. Although there are many other issues that are important, I think that none of those will matter if there is no habitable land or drinkable water left for future generations.

How Do You Think We Can Unite Our Country And Fix Politics?

We must look beyond the two-party system. It does nothing but divide people; once they align themselves with one party, they dig their heels into the ground and refuse to budge. If we can begin to align ourselves more with people who are willing to compromise and truly have a rational discussion about how to solve our problems, then maybe we can make some real progress for this country.
