Why I'm Running
I have become frustrated. Frustrated that hard-working families are struggling to make ends meet. Frustrated with the tone of our political discourse. Frustrated that our region has so much unrealized potential. Frustrated by an absentee representative who worries more about special interests than his citizens. I, like many of you, am tired of being frustrated, and this is why I’ve made the decision to run for office. I want to change the way Washington does business. I want to ensure that our region thrives in the new global economy, builds sustainable energy solutions, and provides healthcare for all. The 21st century is upon us and our government needs to reflect that. It’s time for a change. It is time for a fresh start here in the Blue Ridge.
