My mom and her boss, former Rep. Chuck Whalen, were my role models in public service. They showed me the need for our public officials to be accountable and responsive to the people that elected them, instead of the corporate interests that fund them.
As a lifelong Daytonian, I am running to serve my friends and neighbors in the community. I am tired of seeing Washington politicians looking out for their self-interest at the expense of those back home, dodging town halls and public dialogue in favor of their corporate donors. We pay the price when they vote for large tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and corporations on the backs of working people.
I support federal legislation to reverse the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision and stop unlimited corporate spending and influence in our elections.
