Standing Up for Democratic Values
I am from a working class family, and I know what it feels like to live in poverty. I understand what it’s like to put your dreams on hold because you are barely scraping by. I know what it’s like to be excluded from employment and educational opportunities despite being intelligent and hard working. I understand the frustration that has led so many people to feel disaffected and disenfranchised by our political system. My experiences have given me a unique empathy and perspective, as well as a determination to help those that need it most. I am determined to help create an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthiest 1% of our population.
Our country is failing its citizens on issue after issue. Congress is able but unwilling to act on these issues because congress primarily consists of people who have never been poor and do not understand the needs of the lower and middle classes. I am running for U.S. Senate to change that.
I am unwilling to stand idly by as elected officials fail our communities, and unwilling to settle for an unfair system. I will bring a fresh perspective and a determination to change our country for the better. I will advocate on behalf of the working class, women, people of color, and the LGBT community instead of representing the greed of corporations.
There are some that claim that Utah is not ready for a candidate like me, but I strongly disagree. Utah is not only ready but in desperate need of a senator exactly like me. We cannot wait for others to give us equality. We have to claim equality for ourselves. I have the courage and fortitude to fight for economic prosperity and full equality under the law, and I will serve you well as Utah’s next U.S. Senator
