In representing District 89 at the state level, advocating for the Norfolk community’s best interest needs to be paired with the needs of our neighbors around the state. As we all know, dirty water flows downstream. The actions, practices, and unenforced actions taken all around the state will inevitably affect us in Norfolk. Rampant pollution from industrial farming in neighboring districts not only pollutes our air and water, but contributes to climate change that worsens our flooding. Lack of protections and protocols for workers in mines and on farms means less protections for our working class in District 89. Hannah will be taking a state-wide approach to healing the problems we face here. Politics has to shift from “me” to “us”. All voices must be heard for our state, and our city, to rise to its highest potential.
