Christina knows that Tama County and parts of Marshall and Black Hawk County need smarter government and she knows this isn't a choice about bigger vs. smaller but about paying down debt and investing in the smart solutions that we need right now like:
~ Closing Tax Loopholes
~ More Transparency in Government
~ Better Coordination across Government
Christina believes that healthcare is a fundamental right and will fight to make sure every American has quality, affordable healthcare coverage. She will work to:
~ Strengthen the Affordable Care Act
~ Lower Prescription Drug Costs

~ Protect a Woman's Right to Choose
~ Protect access to healthcare through rural hospitals, community health centers, and home care options for seniors and others who need it.
She believes every child deserves equitable access to high-quality education and will support legislation that invests in teachers and students. Christina understands that all children thrive and learn in a society dedicated to ensuring they reach their full potential. She supports efforts to promote leadership and professional development in the education field and wants to develop partnerships with the private sector to enhance career and technical education and apprenticeship programs.
We have a responsibility to take care of those in need including our most vulnerable populations. This includes those who deserve our respect and support like our veterans and our seniors. Christina will stand against any attempt to take money away from their access to physical and mental health care and housing needs. We can't break the promises we made to them.
Christina believes we should take a lesson from our ancestors when it comes to protecting our environment. She feels that bringing in clean industry and sustainable energy jobs could help us meet the climate challenges we are currently facing. She supports the push to bring the climate crisis to the forefront and seeks to identify real climate solutions like building sustainable infrastructure, supporting stricter pollution standards, cutting energy waste, and helping farmers to decarbonize through agriculture.
Christina will lead by example to take back our democracy from the special interests. She believes that everyone deserves an equal voice. She believes in fairness at home and at work. She seeks equal pay for equal work, and seeks targeted tax incentives for job creations to communities so they can thrive and grow. As state representative, she will stand with others to protect worker's rights, advocate for economic business opportunities, and listen to constituents to ensure their concerns are represented.
