Why are you running for office?
I am running for office to get bog money out of politics and give a voice to the people so that we can get the things the people want; like Universal Health Care and a Green New Deal to create millions of new sustainable jobs.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Climate Change and Universal Health Care are a couple of my top priorities, but I have an extensive list of proposals on my website.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We need to talk about issues like health care and infrastructure investment that affect us all. We need less focus on personalities and buzz words that separate us.

Barack Obama / FDR

Card games, jogging, hiking, national politics.

What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?
We will win with bold proposals to make the needed systemic changes that will motivate the electorate to come out in record numbers, and then we will make the changes our county needs to flourish economically and with equality for all.
