UPDATE. Some events are not within our control. Sadly, Sharna's dad has been battling ALS. He has been a pillar of support for Sharna throughout her life and this campaign. In the past few days he has declined significantly and is not expected to live much longer. Sharna is with her family by his side. Given this situation, Sharna cannot participate in tonight's League of Women Voter's Candidate Forum. Sharna has spoken with Representative McCollum, the League, and attempted to contact candidate Dave Thomas. Please know the thoughts, prayers, and support we've received from so many of you are deeply appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

Sharna's latest TV ad called "Seriously?!", reminds us that we waste hundred of billions of dollars every year paying interest on our national debt. Think of what we could do with all that money! Congress needs to stop spending money it doesn't have. ... See MoreSee Less

Watch Sharna's first TV ad. This is the message we hear from people throughout the district: Congress needs to stop fighting and start working together to get important things done. Please spread the word and share this video. Together, we really can change Congress. ... See MoreSee Less
