Candidate’s Preferred Pronouns

What office are you running for?
U.S. House of Representatives, West Virginia 1st District

With which party are you running for office?
Democratic Party

Election Date
May 12, 2020, primary

Why are you running for office? 
So that I can look at my son’s generation and say that I tried to make things better.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
A combination of opioids, mental health and a lack of healthcare. We plan to introduce legislation that will expand funding to open the appropriate rehab/mental health facilities, as well as expand funding for various social service programs to help our district defeat the system that is working against us.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We have to stop being partisan. I frankly don’t care what someone’s party affiliation is, however, for the vast majority of politicians their political party is an immediate label of their value system. We have to not only be vocal about the issue that are partisan, but also be vocal about issues where we may agree with the other political party.

Who is your hero?
Anyone who stands up against a system that is designed to keep them away.

What are your hobbies?
Oil painting, crochet

What is the most recent book you read?
White Working Class, by Joan C. Williams

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
4 year old son, Teddy

How can our readers get involved in your campaign?
Send me an email and we’ll talk.

What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?
Do you believe the next generation in your district will be better off when they graduate from high school or worse off than they would be had they graduated 10 years ago?
I believe that they will be worse off. If we do not intervene now, those students in my district will either fall into the same trap that is affecting too many in our district already, or they will simply leave the state like 41 people are currently doing per day in WV.
