Good-Paying Jobs

Growth comes from reinvesting in our middle class. We must modernize our infrastructure to remain competitive, repeal laws providing tax breaks for companies sending jobs overseas, and leverage public/private partnerships to train workers while rebuilding our manufacturing base.

Get Big Money
Out Of Politics

People are first, not Corporations. Money is not speech. Undoing Citizens United is the first step to ensure a free and democratic process. The second is to enact laws requiring publicly-funded elections to ensure dark money can not drown out the voices of everyday Americans.

Strengthen Medicare
& Social Security

We must preserve and expand the most successful anti-poverty program in the history of mankind. I support raising the cap on contributions and revising the cost of living index to more accurately reflect the medical expenses of our seniors, especially rising drug prices.

Climate Change
& The Environment

Laynette and I also want to thank our campaign team and our wonderful family (and extended family) for their devotion and a job well done.
