I am running because I decided to light a candle rather than curse the darkness. We have a great deal of darkness in our political system at the moment. Congress is broken. It no longer functions as intended under our Constitution. We no longer have a functioning legislature. The key question in the campaign is who our legislators actually work for. They spend 20 plus hours a week raising money for their next campaign. They simply cannot feed the campaign finance monster and adequately serve their constituents simultaneously.
This is a systemic problem that will not be fixed until we begin electing people who are committed to changing this system to make our election system less costly, more transparent and more reflective of the will of the people. I am a citizen candidate. I pledge that I will not serve more than two terms in office if elected. Moreover, I pledge that I will not raise money for reelection before the fifth year of my Senate term IF I elect to run for a second term. I understand the magnitude of this problem. I am dedicated heart, soul and mind to work on really fixing it.
