Julie's Vision for Maryland
Campaign Finance reform
We need to end "pay to play" by special interests in state elections by prohibiting state-registered lobbyists from contributing to state level political campaigns.
Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety
Our streets are too dangerous for everyone who uses them. By pursuing a 'Vision Zero' strategy, Maryland should aim for eliminating deaths and serious injuries of pedestrians, bicyclists, and people in vehicles.
Paid Parental Leave
Maryland needs paid parental leave so parents can focus on their newborn or adopted child without worrying about making ends meet.
Tackling Climate Change
Maryland should do its part to address climate change and to improve local air quality by aiming for 50% of its electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030. Five other states plus DC have already set similar goals.
We need to invest in public transportation to reduce traffic congestion and ensure that everyone has access to jobs and education opportunities.
Montgomery County schools need sufficient resources from the state to maintain their high quality and to keep up with the second fastest enrollment growth rate in the state.
