Jen comes from a family of Veterans, skilled union trades workers, and community servants. The American values of serving and giving back to the community, of being part of something greater, and working to make a positive impact on the lives of others are instilled in her.
With the belief that leaders are elected to represent all people, not just those with whom we agree, she intends to be a Senator you can trust to represent YOU. She will work to ensure nothing gets in the way of our shared and common goals, to make our communities and our state a better place for us all.

Firefighters, law enforcement officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians save our lives everyday - we must ensure proper funding and resources for our heroes!
Labor and trades unions built this country and there is power for people in the worker's unionized collective voice. Unions improve wages and working conditions for all workers.
