A lifelong resident of WNY there’s no greater honor than public service. My involvment includes Rotary, St. VincentdePaul Society,Joe Lang , Amherst Youth and Senior Foundations, HKC, ECO and Vive laCasa. Wife, mother and animal lover.

With the death of my father age 10 I learned the meaning of responsibility, hard work, compromise and dreams. My father’s dream was to own a restaurant. In 1989 I opened Bing’s Restaurant and Catering.  I understand  the challenges such as the Harlem Rd. Construction Prodject & burdens, the no smoking laws. The rewards of owning a small business helping those in need and creating jobs from 14-84 yrs.old.

One of my greatest privileges was serving on the Amherst Town Board. I implemented policies and saved the taxpayers over $20,000,000 dollars, implemented term limits and termed myself out, challenged the status quo many times, led the way to merging Youth and Recreation department created the first Veterans and disability committee, introduced and lead efforts restricting sex offenders throughout the State along with infrastructure repairs and maintience.

In Congress, I promise to be guided by conscience, serve all people, protect our borders, and fight for social security, veterans, women and minorities. To Correct Obama care and put an end to the rising cost of prescription drugs. Support term limits, Single bill Amendment and Affordable College. Creating jobs and saving our inner cities from gentrification. The current infrastructure in all communities will be a priority this includes the Power Grid. As a granddaughter of an immigrant and longtime community volunteer I’ll replace the word Party with “Team”.

I am a registered Conservative, with the Reupblican endorsment. I believe that once a person is elected to office they are hired by the people to work together. I have always worked hard to find solutions no matter how far apart  the idea's might be. I believe that the current congress and senate have loss site of what is truly important, The People! I believe that America is a free nation with open borders. I believe we must always uphold the laws of our Nation. I believe any person wanting to reside and make America their home must also agree to adhere to all our laws. As a Congresswoman I will work to change the gridlock.
