Lewis is driven by her struggles to care for autistic daughter and the state bureaucracy, listing “her top three priorities would be improving the health care system, increasing funding for public schools and raising the minimum wage” and “I know firsthand how a quality education can help lift people out of poverty. I grew up incredibly poor.”

Check out the interview below as she expands and explains her ideas, what motivates her and what voters can expect from her if she is elected to work in Tallahassee.
