Van's Position on Issues 

"Interior residents are facing some real challenges: high energy costs, bad air quality,
inadequate funding for public education, low paying jobs, a lack of affordable childcare, Covid, and climate change. For us to overcome these challenges we need to elect state legislators who will look for practical solutions, not push partisan agendas. With my experience and maturity, I will be such a Legislator." -Van Lawrence
