Tara is passionate about protecting the environment, reducing air pollution and preserving open spaces. She views barriers to doing so as systemic problems that need to be addressed with a multi-pronged approach. After talking to voters over numerous election cycles, Tara recognizes the issues that rise to the forefront are tax reform, affordable healthcare and sustainable wages, which means establishing fair share tax reform, affordable and accessible paths to healthcare and prescription drugs, affordable housing and an increase in wages.
At the same time, Tara envisions a plan for the future by strengthening our public schools, preparing a workforce for new jobs and forming a rational energy policy that acknowledges the gravity of the existential crisis posed by global climate change. She is an advocate for establishing a State Infrastructure Bank to fund infrastructure projects and assist in the policies that would achieve these initiatives and strengthen the middle class.
