The House of Representatives is responsible for introducing and voting on bills, resolutions and amendments, and for approving the budget. Representatives also serve on various policy committees. The House may send Articles of Impeachment of elected officials to the Senate and elects the President if there is a tie in the Electoral College.Term: 2 yearsSalary: $174,000Vote for ONE.

As I write this in April 2024, the issues I am most focused on right now are (not in any order) 1) addressing our own recovering economy and our national security/border issues 2) protecting our freedoms including reproductive and health choices 3) securing continued support for Ukraine’s defense against Russia – so Russian aggression doesn’t spread and so that American soldiers don’t end up fighting on the ground in Europe or in a larger war 4) bringing about a sustainable ceasefire in Gaza and Israel and ensuring a lasting peace in the Middle East, and 5) ensuring that our own elections are free and fair. I am actively working in Congress and in our community.
There are many. I support 1) raising the threshold to remove the Speaker of the House so it takes more than one person to remove them, 2) empowering committee members to shape legislation under their committees of jurisdiction, and 3) enabling every bill with significant bipartisan support to get a vote in the House, among other reforms. Of course, addressing gerrymandering would help as would other similar voting reform actions but many of these are not controlled federally.
I am a proud supporter of H.R. 1, the For the People Act, H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and H.R. 5314, the Protecting Our Democracy Act.
At our best, the US leads the international community as a force for good, advocating for global peace, cooperation, and human rights. We can ensure our own national security and effectively respond to challenges facing the international community by supporting our allies in Ukraine, ensuring a robust national defense, keeping our allies close and watchful eyes on our adversaries, addressing emerging threats such as cuber, AI and biological, and mitigating climate change.
