I am a Blue Dog Democrat because I believe that a fiscally conservative government and being committed to the security and safety of the United States are two principles our founding fathers supported and should continue to be the core principles upon which our leaders govern. As a mother of two, and a lifelong centrist Democrat, it is really important to me that our elected officials think about the next generation, especially when a failure to reign in spending jeopardizes their future economic well-being. 

Having lived in New York at the time of and immediately following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, I have a strong commitment to ensuring that our nation is safe and that we protect ourselves adequately and proactively. My husband and I work very hard to provide for our children, but we need to be able to depend on our elected leaders to work for their futures, and not just those of the politically-connected with powerful voices.
