I am a thoughtful, caring, hard-working candidate who believes that representative government is accountable for the infrastructure that allows responsible individuals, communities, and businesses to thrive.
We have not been well-served under the trickle-down philosophy which both ruling parties have bought into (or have cashed in on). Today's power brokers are failing us.
I am running for office because I want the job and will be a good representative. My election will tip the scales of power and of policy. The time is now to begin electing legislators who are not affiliated with the parties of business-as-usual, whose parties and power affiliations do not solicit corporate/lobbyist funding, who usher in new thinking, who call for tax fairness
, different budget priorities
, and infrastructure investments which support the health of local communities, farms, and businesses, and transparency in government.
My campaign is about beginning a new dialogue, about reaching out to those of all political persuasions, including those who have been disenfranchised by the current system.
As the first elected Green-Rainbow Party member of the state Legislature, my service will be in the same spirit - an example of the kind of transparent, accessible representative government that into the future people will continue demanding.
