I’m running to represent our community as a delegate in the Maryland legislature because I look out and I see a world on fire . . . a world plagued with exploitation, predation, waste, greed, ecological instability, and a complete lack of political will to do anything.   I see an unwillingness to seriously get at the root causes of the oppressions and abuses so many are expected to tolerate daily on the part of the media and our representatives.   Like the late Stephen Hawking, I’m skeptical about humanity’s odds of surviving this century without putting an end to capitalism and its impossible contradictions.

I’m running because I want my 6 year old son to have air to breathe, grass to run through, and stable ecological commons when he’s raising his kids; and I’m skeptical that our representatives are serious about making that happen.

I’m running because the egregiously bigoted politics of district 7’s sitting delegates demand both electoral and community based condemnation.

Finally, I’m running because I optimistically believe that we can create a world where peace, cooperation, and enlightenment are the norm, not the exception; and where labor and production can radically improve our lives rather than imprison us.
