Why I am Running For Congress

The people of Virginia's beautiful and historic First District deserve to be represented by someone who wants its future to be even better than its past.  I am running for Congress because I have a vision of a progressive agenda that improves the lot and life of every American. 

I, like you, am deeply concerned about the current direction of our country. It is because of this that I have been driven to take action for what I believe in.

I stand for universal healthcare in a free market, and firmly believe that those in need of care should receive it.

I stand for outstanding schools in every zip code, because every child should have the opportunity to succeed.

I stand for major investments in our infrastructure that will push us into the future

I stand for immediate action on climate change that emphasizes the responsible usage of resources and research on new technologies.

I stand for real efforts to reduce gun violence in order to ensure the safety of the American people. 

I stand for campaign finance reform, because our elected officials should be beholden to their voters, not to special interest groups. 


Because I love this country, and because I have a vision of what it can become, I have no choice but to run for Congress.  I pledge to remain faithful to my principles, and to the voters who place their trust in me.

I have been called to action and I am ready to serve

The Trump-McConnell-Ryan Tax Scam Continues, Lower Withholdings & Future Tax Burdens

With the rush to pass a Tax Bill without due process comes under withholdings and the false impression of a tax break.  The bill will come due April 15th, 2019.  Meanwhile the federal deficit and trade deficit are ballooning.  It's time for real fiscal responsibility, not phoney gopernomics.
