State and local government are the backstop to the chaos happening at the federal level.

The Trump budget alone is an example of how devastating federal policies by this administration can be for our local community. Cuts to food stamps, Medicaid and other domestic programs will be devastating to hundreds of thousands across our state, and a huge number of people who live in Montgomery County.

From Wheaton to Kensington, Chevy Chase to Silver Spring and Lyttonsville, we must protect and fight for all of the members of our community.

Emily is a progressive party activist, with a strong professional background in public policy and advocacy. She spends her days fighting for patients to get access to needed healthcare, and to help lower the cost of prescription drugs, and her nights organizing neighbors and friends to advocate for policies that impact them at the local, state and federal levels. She is also a mother who believes that every child deserves access to a high-quality education, starting from pre-school.

Emily welcomes input from all D18 residents on ways we can continue to improve our community. Below are a small sample of issues Emily is committed to fight for, if elected to serve the community:
