Why are you running?
I believe my life should count for the highest good in service to all people, a belief that has motivated me every step of my life. It is the core reason I am running today! In the past month, I and my family walked over 400 miles door to door across the district listening to voters. My 14 years of service on a city council, together with creating and leading a 501c.3 non-profit corporation serving over 50 countries, has given me unique and valuable skills I will bring to Congress.
