We can include hydrodynamics to harness the renewable energy of moving water to help…

As your representative for Congressional District 14, I would prioritize the flood mitigation projects mentioned above for our district. I would prioritize criminal justice reform and the issues of funding flood mitigation infrastructure and public education by doing the above and decriminalizing marijuana nationwide and working with the state officials to legalize and tax adult consumption.
