Extremism is tearing America apart, and we desperately need a return to normalcy in Washington DC. As the only candidate who actually lives in Congressional District 38, I can give the people of CD38 the proper representation they deserve.

If we all just talked to each other, we would discover how much we all still have in common. Extremists don’t talk, they shout. They don’t want to listen, and they don’t want all voices to be heard.

So let’s have a discussion. Tell me where you stand on these issues, and I will do my best to represent you. Here’s what I have heard from you:


  • Save Social Security
  • Improve foreign relations


  • Properly fund public education
  • Make tuition more affordable


  • Defend democracy
  • Make voting easier for everyone


  • Embrace renewable energy innovation
  • Proper flood mitigation


  • Protect marginalized communities
  • Invest in affordable housing

Gun Safety

  • Responsible gun ownership
  • Prevent more mass shootings


  • Give women control of their own bodies
  • Universal healthcare (Medicare for All)


  • More effective border management
  • Address root causes of immigration

If you would like to read more about where I stand, please take a look at my Platform page.
