Sheriff Reports Active Shooter in Aberdeen

The Harford County Sheriff's Office has confirmed an active shooter situation this morning in Aberdeen. I am praying for the victims and their families. These shootings have become too familiar in our community. It has been less than a year since the deadly shooting at a business in Edgewood, and two years since Senior Deputy Dailey and Deputy First Class Logsdon were killed at an Abingdon eatery.

Thank God for the men and women in law enforcement who work around the clock for our safety. These first responders put their lives on the line to protect us time and time again.

Days like this remind me how critical it is to support our police officers, firemen, EMTs, and all our first responders. The risks they face for us demand nothing less. Working together, we can ensure first responders have the resources they need to fight crime, violence, and addiction. I ask you to stand with me. I BACK THE BLUE!

Education, Choices and Our Children

I have had several people ask me recently why I homeschool and do not have my children in Harford County Public Schools, especially since I am running for a county office. I had one person ask me if I hate the public school system. Of course, I do not. Having a vibrant and thriving educational system is vital for the country, state, and county and I fully support the school system and its teachers. Teachers and the entire school system require support from all levels of government to ensure our children are receiving the best possible education.

My oldest two children graduated from the Harford County Public School System, one from the Science and Math Academy and the other from the International Baccalaureate Program. For various reasons, my other children struggled within the school system. After reviewing the options available, my husband and I decided homeschooling would be the best choice for our children and the family. It was at that point, I realized public school systems are not able to meet the educational needs of every single child. Parents know their children’s strengths and weaknesses and are the best people to determine their educational needs.

My personal experience taught me families need to have educational choices available to them. They should be able to choose from among the options the one which will best meet the needs of their children and family. Homeschooling has provided us the flexibility to design individualized programs to meet the needs of each of our children and they are thriving.

Just like public education needs to be supported by the various levels of government, parental choice in education also needs to be supported.

Primary Victory!

I want to thank everyone who helped me to win my primary race for the Harford County Council District A council seat. I could not have done without the support of many individuals. My family supported and encouraged me throughout the entire primary season. My campaign staff kept me focused. My volunteers helped to spread the vision. Most important to the victory are the voters of Southern Harford County who heard my message and responded.

There is plenty of work to do, but I am ready to meet the challenges ahead. I look forward to speaking with many more of you in the months to come. I have a vision of a thriving and prosperous community, and I want to be Southern Harford's Voice to ensure we are heard in Bel Air.
