Yesterday was my first town hall as a new Delegate. I was excited to talk about healthcare, the environment, housing and more.

I hope to next time make the news for others reasons – like my ideas for reducing healthcare costs and improving healthcare quality, promoting clean air and water while combating climate change, and funding our public schools and teachers. https://t.co/tMjf7CnoRv
