I am running to help create an economic system that works for everyone. Corporate profits have increased for the last 30 years while working families’ wages have stagnated. Climate change is escalating. Healthcare costs in the United States are among the highest in developed nations while outcomes are among the worst. These dire realities show that our economic system fails to use its resources efficiently and fails to provide opportunities for all who wish to pursue them.

We deserve a leader in Washington who can help set our nation on a better path, a path where hard work is rewarded with a paycheck that can put food on the table and money in the bank. We need an economic system that provides everyone the chance to participate in our nation’s prosperity. We need a healthcare system that allows everyone access to affordable quality healthcare. And, we need environmental policies that encourage energy saving behavior, clean energy production, and that protect our environment and way of life for generations to come.
