Statement: Putting People First means Solutions made in and for SW Washington. More than ever, we need a maverick with visionary leadership skills in fixing issues in our district, so our federal government helps only when needed. I have listened by hosting over 80 town halls in every corner of our district.
Healthcare is a human right. No one should ever have to choose between receiving healthcare or going broke. I will fight to enact a Healthcare Security for All single-payer system incorporating CHIP, Medicare and Medicaid.
I will fight to enhance Social Security and prevent privatization. Minimum wage must be increased and tied to the cost of living. Solve Housing Insecurity. End boom-bust reliance on Oregon and attract 21st century industries, bringing reliable well-paying jobs to SW Washington. Our beautiful environment is our number one economic asset. It makes jobs. Protect it.
Empower children to succeed and become more competitive globally by strengthening education, improving teacher salaries, increasing funding, and modernizing classrooms. Establish student loan forgiveness and reform tuition systems to ensure affordable, accessible education for all.
With clear transportation strategies, we can improve commutes with common sense solutions and equalize representation on both sides of the Columbia River. Implement rural broadband infrastructure. Keep families together through compassionate immigration and secure border reform. Transition police services to a community friendly model. Uphold the 2nd Amendment and seek reasonable firearms regulation, not confiscation.
I am Putting People First by standing up to both political party establishments and listening peoples’ voices from all sides. I will never take money that compromises my ability to serve the constituents of our district. Restore Congress’ original purpose: to hear your voice. This is our fight and I am in your corner! I ask for your vote.
