My campaign platform is simple… Member of Congress were meant to represent the needs of their districts above petty politics and self-interest. We need to get back to that. Over the years, our local residents, businesses, veterans and farmers have not received the representation that they deserve. Whether it is the 48,000 veterans that call our district home, or the multi-billion-dollar economic engine that is our local agriculture, our current representative consistently chooses politics over her district every time.
What does all of this mean?
When your representative puts politics in front of what is best for their district, you get lackluster results.
That is why it is no surprise that not only do so many lingering problems in our district still exist, but nonpartisan sources have rated our Congresswoman, Julia Brownley, as one of the least effective members of Congress.
Rep. Julia Brownley is a career politician that has spent 23 years cashing taxpayer funded paychecks to represent her constituents interests. Powerful unions and lobbyists are some of her biggest political contributors and have been successful keeping her in office all this time. Unfortunately for local residents this means that ineffective representation has become entrenched in our region.
My campaign pledge is simple:
No matter what political party controls the White House or Congress, my constituents can count on me to represent what is best for them, their families and their businesses.
I am not a career politician and have stood on my own two feet ever since arriving in this country with nothing.
The day I became an American citizen was one of the proudest days of my life and I am running for Congress so that I can give back to the country that has given me so many opportunities.
I would be honored to receive your vote and your trust and pledge to never let you down.
