Our Platform

Education 

Madinah attended middle school in the district but her parents opted to send her to a charter high school. Her husband graduated from a public high school, and their high school experiences differed immensely. 

Their different experiences were due in part to Delaware’s current funding system, which is outdated and fails to direct more funds to students in poverty even though these students experience greater challenges in the classroom.

Economic Justice

Madinah recognizes that we are living in an unprecedented time of income inequality in Delaware and throughout the country. For too long, our government has done more to protect corporations than working people. 

The time has come to bring fairness to our tax code and make sure the wealthy pay their fair share. Bringing economic justice to Delaware also means making sure that every person receives a fair wage and is able to support themselves and their families. 

Healthcare 

Madinah believes that healthcare is a human right and supports Medicare-for-all. In Delaware and throughout the country, healthcare costs continue to rise while health outcomes continue to get worse. Our nation’s healthcare system is fundamentally broken and repairing it requires structural change.

Housing

Madinah believes that everyone deserves a safe place to call home. But for too many people in RD 26, their access to housing is constantly under threat. In manufactured housing communities, like Glasgow Courts, tenants own their homes but not the land it rests on. This means they can be evicted any month if the landowner sells the property to a developer. In other rental properties, leases can be changed unexpectedly leaving families in dire situations.

To make sure that everyone has a roof over their head, we need to expand protections and make sure that everyone has the opportunity to either own their home or own their neighborhoods as a community.

Green New Deal for Delaware 

Madinah realizes that our collective failure to protect the planet is going to affect generations to come. And it’s not just that; today, many Delawareans are exposed to toxic pollutants and unclean water, while the companies that are responsible for the damage are rarely held accountable. 

Every Delawarean deserves clean water and air. Madinah believes in investing in green job creation to both protect our environment and revitalize our economy.
