So why am I running? I’m running for that guy who works two jobs just to try to keep on keeping on. I’m running for grandmothers who must choose between medicine or food. I’m running for workers across Tennessee, advocating not for simply more jobs but for better jobs. I’m running to make sure state programs meant to assist those who have lost their jobs to trade are fully funded so Tennessee workers can be retrained and retained in the workforce. When I ran the newspaper, there were a few things I absolutely loved about the job. One was talking to people. Old, young, black, white, rich, poor, etc.- we have such a variety of interesting people. I loved listening to them and writing about the fears, hopes, dreams and achievements of them, their families, friends and neighbors. This is another of my motivations for running. I want to take my neighbors hopes, dreams and concerns to Nashville.
American elections are supposed to have two candidates. For far too long the voters in District 12 have not had a choice. I’m proud to bring that choice to the ballot. For far too long the people here have viewed the Democratic party as one that left them behind. One that is out of touch and full of people from far away places such as New York, San Francisco, and L.A. I’m running to show that is simply not the case. This isn’t about right and left, it's about what’s right and wrong for the people in my District & Tennessee.
To accomplish our goals we are going to need to build the strongest team possible and that means we need you to be a part of it!
