Position/philosophy statement Special interests exercise too much control in Washington. I intend to represent the people of the 10th District, not big companies.
The folks in my district are suffering because of the economic slowdown caused by the Corona Virus. I will work to fund a vaccine to prevent this illness and take measures to put the country back to work. We must stop the deaths from this disease. Many of the people in my district work in small businesses or on farms. My goal is to get those businesses reopened and to establish trade strategies that benefit the farmers in my area.
We are not going to be able to go back to the way things were before this virus hit. We do need to develop a "new normal." These are some of the steps I plan to take:

1. Provide significant funding to eliminate the Corona Virus so we can get back to work. 2. Make sure that Social Security and Medicare are safe. 3. Provide funding to help small businesses reopen. 4. Create trade policies that benefit our farmers. 5. Fund schools adequately so that they can reopen.

The most important role I want to play is to truly represent the people of the 10th District rather than representing special interests. This means focusing on jobs, income security, and financial safety for our senior citizens. I intend to align myself with representatives on both sides of the aisle with the same prospective. If we work together, we can achieve our goals.
We need to be less dependent on fossil fuels. I plan to work on legislation to increase the use of solar and wind energy. We also need to restore our national parks. Funding for our parks has been cut dramatically. The park system is our showpiece for visitors from the U.S. and afar.
