Joy’s top priorities include school funding and affordable healthcare options, services for Veterans, and transportation solutions:
Advancing Quality Education
As an educator, Joy believes equal access to quality education is the vital foundation to building a strong economy. She will fight to give students every opportunity for success by ensuring our schools are fully funded. She will provide students with more options by making college more affordable and accessible while expanding vocational and technical training programs.
Keeping our Communities Healthy and Safe
Joy spent 14 years working with seniors and underserved populations to gain access to Medicare, Medicaid and other critical health care services. She will put the needs of regular people over special interests to ensure families have access to affordable healthcare, advocate for needed mental health resources, and support commonsense gun reform to keep our kids safe.
Easing Commutes and Reducing Congestion
Joy’s husband works at Boeing and commutes across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge every day and that adds up! Joy will ease people’s commutes by prioritizing area infrastructure projects like highway improvements. She will work to reduce expensive tolls and fares so we can afford to stay in the region we love and spend more time with our families and less time sitting in traffic.
Lowering Taxes and Our Cost of Living
We don’t need new taxes, we need fairer taxes. Joy will lower the cost of living for South Sound families by lowering property taxes and making sure millionaires and large corporations pay their fair share.
