When I declared my candidacy last June I spent the first seven months travelling the 40,000 square miles of this District on a “listening tour” because I don’t believe you can represent people if you don’t experience the world through their eyes. While on this tour I met all kinds of people who told me what they really care about. My platform consists of 20 issues, all given to me by the constituents of District 13. My positions on these issues are on the positions page. Now that we are in the final days of the campaign, I am travelling again, this time to hold conversations about how Congress should tackle these issues. If you would like to join this conversation then please attend one of my events or send your comments through my website. Thank you for helping me to craft your message.
