We are living in a historic moment. We are confronted by a political system that has been corrupted by corporate wealth and influence.  But, the people are ready for new ideas and innovative solutions.  I pledge that if you elect me to Congress, every action I take and every decision I make will be for the good of the people of Michigan's Sixth Congressional District and the United States.

Health care, clean water, air, soil, and food free from toxins, safe workplaces, and equality under the law are human rights. These rights may not be enshrined in the Constitution, but they are fundamental to human life.  We must ensure the human rights of all people.  

We must also protect the dignity of all of members of our communities. Everyone who works full time must have a living wage. Education, whether academic, vocational, or other, must never throw hard-working students into a life of debt. Let's embrace and celebrate the diversity that makes the United States a unique and extraordinary nation. 

To do this we need good government. To return our nation to the people we must expel the corporate interests that corrupt the system, remove corporate cash from our elections, and end gerrymandering. In the process, let's embrace our role as stewards of the Earth. There are no jobs, no nations, no communities, and no people on a dead planet. Our ethical code must include a commitment to leave the planet in a better way than we found it.
