University Issues Sarah supports:
Operating Safely with COVID-19: The University must promote operations in a manner that allows them to facilitate in-person learning safely.
Free Speech: Republican and Conservative voices on campus are consistently mocked and stymied, even to the point of being banned. Sarah will ensure the First Amendment rights of every student are protected.
Lower Tuition: Tuition costs are out of control. Sarah will not only work to make college affordable, but rein in out of control spending.
