Representative, District 56

State Representative

  • Diana Lawrence photo
  • Diana Lawrence is running for Assembly to create a more open and transparent government. She favors a more open process to draw legislative district lines and eliminating laws that make it more difficult for eligible citizens to vote. Conservation and climate change are also top priorities for Lawrence. She believes in moving away from coal-fired power plants, investing in wind energy, and maintaining environmental standards. Lawrence is opposed to private school vouchers, in favor of marijuana legalization, and in favor of fully funding public schools. She believes in prison reform and opposes corporate giveaways like the Foxconn deal. Assemblyman Dave Murphy has been a rubber stamp for Republican leadership and has voted against conservationism, including eliminating long-standing mining regulations. Lawrence is the more progressive choice.
