Democratic Candidate for Ohio's 2nd District, U.S. House of Representatives
As we approach the election of 2016, the problems which plague our society and the world remain unaddressed:
We still face a Middle East where the voices of radical sects drown out the voices of the peaceful majority.
At home we still see the widening gap between those who struggle to survive and those whose economic security is assured.
Even with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, access to health care is unaffordable for those at the bottom of the economic ladder.
Our elections are corrupted by the influence of corporate money and obscene wealth.
Higher education, which is necessary if our young are to prosper, is unaffordable without incurring massive debt that paralyzes graduates’ ability to purchase the products that drive our economy.
Women still only earn 78 cents for every dollar men make for doing the same job, and still face threats to their ability to make their own reproductive choices.
We face a rapidly changing environment which threatens our very existence.
Our aging infrastructure needs restoration, as do the grids and stations that provide us with the power we must have to succeed in the coming century.
Racism, along with religious and sexual intolerance, continues to raise its ugly head.
Our society bristles with high-capacity, rapid-fire weapons possessed by individuals who have no need for such battlefield-derived weapons for either sport or self-defense.
I believe every one of these problems has a solution.
Our campaign is about fixing the above problems for the betterment of Americans and the rest of the world’s people. Readers will find my positions stated and defended on this website. As always, I invite your questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. When we are not well versed on a subject, my staff and I will research and report back as quickly as we can develop the necessary information.
Thanks for taking the time to read this message. We must pull together in order to secure a better future for all.
