As a Millennial, I’ve realized both parties have lost touch with reality. Today in so many elections from our choice of presidential candidate, right down to this state senate race; I see party boss’s exerting influences, making back room deals, controlling the process, and leaving out the voters. These practices must stop. It is never anyone’s “turn” in a Democracy. Establishment partly leaders making backroom deals to elect their cronies must stop. We need fresh faces and bold ideas to bring democracy back to life.

We must end the practice of coronating candidates who believe it’s “their turn.” We must speak up when we see elected officials and party establishment using unjust means to promote, or suppress, certain candidates; and we must END the practice of super-delegates and allow the people to pick their leaders, not backroom anonymous rich donors. And most importantly we must remind both parties once again that we are a country of ideas, not of candidates or special interests or money. Our collective ideas are what matter, and I am running to bring the two party system back from the edge, away from the path or corruption, and into the hands of the people for good.

If elected I will be the deciding vote on every piece of legislation in an equally divided state senate. This will give our district the power to be the most influential seat in the state instead of being a throwaway, predictable, party follower seat that votes however party leadership tells us to.

Let’s elect an independent thinker that will bring the power back to this district.
