I’m running to represent the 16th District because I know that we can’t let the most vital issues facing our communities — creating more jobs that pay well and are rewarding, and making health care more affordable — be taken for granted by establishment politicians. I will stand up to TV celebrities who hijack our causes, promise us things will be different, and then sell us out just so they can move a few more country club memberships when we’re not looking. I believe in universal access to quality healthcare, expanding Social Security, and community reinvestment in education and infrastructure.

I’ve taught at one of our country’s top public universities, and have worked with some of its leading hospitals as they grapple with the challenges produced by the exploding cost of healthcare. I am an experienced management consultant with a proven track record of helping hospitals stay in business so they can improve the health of our most vulnerable friends and neighbors. I believe in a simple, common-sense approach to government spending that puts our money to work for us in the most cost-effective ways possible. I think that running government “like a business” means making investments in our country’s future, not stripping it for parts.

Americans deserve change, but not the kind we’ve gotten.

Representing you isn’t a part-time job. And we can’t make the kinds of change we need by stocking the president’s cabinet with the same Goldman Sachs executives who brought our economy to its knees during the Bush administration.

I will bring real expertise, ethics, and energy back to Washington.
