Angela’s campaign priority areas are economic development, infrastructure, and education.
Economic Development is a priority area because in order to sustain statewide and national growth, we must rethink how we support the small business and microbusiness development that are the backbone of our economy.
Infrastructure is a priority area because as a state and as a nation, we must make investments in both traditional infrastructure and non-traditional infrastructure to ensure economic development.
Education is a priority area to ensure economic development and infrastructure investments are maximized through policies that reimagine our K-12 and post-secondary education systems in ways that produce a workforce prepared for a global market.
