To have a government that works for the everyday American, we must expand accountability for each every elected official. Here is how I plan to do that.
I can't promise we will be able to pass a constitutional amendment that places term limits on members of Congress. But I promise to work with any member of congress - regardless of political party - willing to fight for congressional term limits. This is one of the most critical issues of our day and requires every elected representative to place country over party.
We need a constitutional amendment that ends political gerrymandering. Democracy thrives when people pick their representatives. Gerrymandering allows politicians to pick their constituents. I will fight for a constitutional amendment that established an independent, non-partisan commission that draws districts lines.
No dark money
You have the right to know who is contributing to my campaign. I will never take "dark money" from unnamed donors. I am elected to represent you - not special interests with deep pockets. Any candidate that takes thousands or tens of thousands of dollars from special interest groups will have a hard time representing your interest over their donor's. That's just plain common sense.
In-Person Town Halls
I believe that if you sign up for a job, you should do it. As an elected representative, that means talking to all voters in your district - not just the one's that agree with you. I promise to hold in-person town halls and not ignore questions I find hard to answer.
If I am blessed to be your elected representative, all voters will have an equal opportunity to be heard. It does not matter if you're a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or independent - it is your constitutional right to be represented equally in Congress. As your representative, I promise your voice will be heard.
