Statement: We live in a beautiful area with abundant resources and innovative people. However, too many folks struggle to make ends meet. Students graduate with insurmountable debt, workers face stagnant wages and threats to workers’ rights, and families have difficulty finding stable housing. We need a new deal in Washington.
I’m a farmer, small business owner, nonprofit leader, and progressive activist. With my diverse experiences and proven leadership, I will champion a bold, values-based agenda focused on solving problems. Together, we can create a fair economy and a sustainable future that works for everyone. I ask for your vote.
