Too many politicians are out of touch with the day-to-day workings of American life. They refuse to acknowledge that financial concerns loom over our hopes and dreams and influence nearly every decision we make. I've never been rich, but I've never been in poverty either; I've always been working, just on the cusp. I believe my life is like that of most Americans--I have no health insurance, I have a mountain of debt, and I live pay check to pay check. But, like most Americans, I believe with absolute certainty that things will get better for me, my family, my friends, and my community if I just keep working at it.

 

The Declaration of Independence claims life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as the rights of all. Therefore, it is the responsibility of our government of citizens to ensure that any inequality is set right. The current Congress has created a climate of fear where wit is proscribed, learning despised, enquiry detested, and only hypocrisy encouraged. We deserve better. You deserve a Representative who will always stand against inequity and not just when it's politically convenient.

 

I believe in peace and nonviolence, I believe that the government should be there to catch us when we stumble and fall, I believe in securing our environmental safety for generations to come, I believe in doing our fair share, and I believe that no one, rich or powerful, is above the law.

 

I want to serve my community. As your Representative to Congress I will bring a real world understanding to the formation of laws. Because I am a Green, I will never trade your well-being against future political or personal gain. Because I am a teacher, I'll strive to help everyone reach their full potential in their own way. As a poet, I believe in a world where what benefits all will equally benefit the one. As an American, I will fight to maintain our freedoms and live up to our responsibilities.
