Mariah Believes

At the Core, we want the same things. We want safe communities, where are children can grow up to have better opportunities than we had. We want a fair and honest economy where workers are treated with dignity and employers can experience healthy growth. We want to know that we can take care of our families if someone gets sick because we shouldn't be healthier because we are wealthier. And at the end of the day, if we make good decisions for our families and communities, we will thrive.

Mariah has lived her life serving her community as a teacher and volunteer. She comes from a long line of public servants - it runs in her family. She believes the best leaders are those who have a heart for service. Whether working to improve opportunities for children, protecting the environment, or volunteering with Veterans, Mariah leads by example.
From Spring Hill to Spring City, Mariah believes all people deserve an equal opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That is why she believes public education and healthcare are foundations of successful communities. Mariah will ensure the ideals will be maintained through legislation that supports those values.
Volunteering for the veterans, Mariah has a profound respect for their service. With this respect at heart, she works tirelessly to provide them with all the necessary support as a humble thank you for the sacrifices they made for the country.
Mariah knows that government works best when decision makers are values driven and focused on solving our real world problems. In business or education, Mariah has always been a change-agent, finding effective and efficient ways to get things done with win-win solutions.
Mariah believes available medical care is a foundation of a healthy society. As a volunteer with the veterans, she understands how often basic insurance fails to cover the demand for medical care. Mariah feels for all who lack even basic insurance and hopes to make a change.
Mariah believes every voice is important and every vote counts. That why she makes voting and voter registration an important part of her life. She votes regularly and brings others to the polls. Mariah believes voting is the most important form of activism you can do for your community.
Coming from a long line of civil servants, Mariah knows exactly where the struggle for firemen and policemen lies.
As someone who has studied and taught how government works, she knows it is not working the way it is supposed to. There is no greater problem then the divisive rhetoric that surrounds our current political discourse. And it has an impact back home, damaging our families and our friendships. Our communities are stronger when we stop focusing on separation and division and find areas where we have common ground.
Mariah believes financial assistance should be available to the wide public. She thinks it's time to eliminate the unfair and predatory lending practices making loans safe and affordable to anyone.
The United States has been called the great American Experiment. This experiment will only work when the participants are engaged in the process and we elect leaders who we can trust. Too many people feel like government doesn't speak for them or care about their needs. We deserve leaders who are able to speak truthfully who have a moral compass.
