I decided to run for Congress of the 16th Congressional District because there are no politicians speaking to the issues that affect me, my family, or my community.
Politicians are too far removed from the issues that affect the underrepresented--working class.
My experience has taught me that the people most affected by a policy are the ones that have the solutions but are rarely consulted even though they are the subject matter experts.
My goal is to unite the working class and help us realize that we have similar wants and needs.
We as the Working Class may not have the dollars but we do have strength in numbers.
