I remember being little, sitting with my grandmother and her friends as we stuffed envelopes to get out the vote for Democratic candidates, and being mesmerized by how powerful those ladies were. I may have been too young to understand what we were doing, but I knew they were taking action to help their community. I wanted to be JUST like them. My grandmother showed me what one person can do to make the world around them better. She broke the mold of what women of her time were expected to do, and taught me that my voice mattered. And when I was a young lawyer, feeling a little lost in a career that didn't satisfy my soul, it was my grandmother who inspired me to change tracks and get involved in politics—first supporting other women candidates, then entering public service myself. She showed me the power women have to make a difference. That's why I'm running.
