Why I'm Running

I am running for Congress because there is a need for a fundamental change in direction, culture and mindset of this country. We are stuck in a never ending cycle and expect different results. Progress is not cyclical. If you want to see something new then you have to be something new. I want to work with our communities on a new way forward that is brighter for all of our people.

 

We, the residents  of the District of Columbia deserve recognition with all of the rights to representation enjoyed by other states in Congress. America has to get back to caring for the sick; we can no longer be idle while our people suffer. We have lost sight of what it means to be a country of the people, for the people, and by the people. We have to shift to a human-centered approach to government that is holistic in its assessment of its citizens' needs. The status quo will not do. We need a new direction, and I want to help us move forward.
