I'm a progressive and I'm going to be running a campaign to represent Washington's 10th Congressional District. I've been working since I was 15.  I'm 25 years old and I own and operate a trucking business with my wife.  I'm an activist and I have worked on campaign for Education funding, getting money out of politics, a green New Deal, an increased minimum wage, and other issues. my representative doesn't agree with almost any major policies the majority of Americans agree with and so I think he should be replaced. I've pledged to take this all the way. I'll be personally knocking on 25,000 doors before the primary, and along with volunteers I expect we will need to knock on 100,000 doors before the primary, and 400,000 before the general election.

I know everyone has different priorities in what they look for in a candidate, so here's a short list of my policies:

-At least a $20 minimum wage by 2028. continuous increase tied to inflation.
-Green New Deal with workers as a PRIORITY, not an afterthought.
   ~Nationalize energy production in the US, manufacture & export green energy. All wealth generated is used to fill retiremen fund, and used to fund paid family and Medical leave for ALL.  Similar to Oil Pension fund in Norway
-Federal Jobs Guarantee. All jobs at least 5% above minimum wage.
-Free College, Trade School, & Job Certification courses for all Americans of ANY age, prioritizing the implementation for in-demand fields like Medical and Green Energy to meet the demands of the Green New Deal and Medicare for All allowing more people to finally get the healthcare they need.
-100% Federal income tax break for ALL households under $80k/year for 2 years.
-Tax the rich at least as high as FDR
-Massive annually increasing tax penalty for companies that don't employ only Americans, similar to what they did to us with the healthcare mandate.
-DOUBLE military salary, bring all troops home from the Middle East and put them under the direction of the United States Army Corps of Engineers to rebuild OUR crumbling infrastructure.
-Nationalize weapons manufacturing, bombs should be for actual defense, and they should not be a for-profit industry that lobbies and bribes politicians.
-National Improved Medicare for All.  Abolish for-profit health insurance.
-Reduce mass shootings with thorough Federal background checks and FREE MENTAL HEALTHCARE FOR ALL.
-Ban private prisons. Require all prisons to provide college & trade school, ban private job discrimination for nonviolent criminals, still guarantee Federal job to all ex-cons.
-Police reforms, bias training, de-escalation training, demilitarization, non-lethal force emphasis etc
-No subsidies for large businesses, only tax incentives for SMALL businesses that pay their workers well
-Fix K-12 so kids can start college or trade school at 16.
-Federally funded program to end homelessness, including for the 40k+ military veterans.
-U.S. gov can only buy from Union & Worker-owned American businesses
-Ban corporate and foreign lobbyists.
-Publicly Financed Elections and ranked choice voting, automatic voter registration
-Firmly establish women's rights to control their own bodies.
-Pathway to citizenship, no money wasted on the wall, decriminalize drugs and put pressure on countries south of our border to also decriminalize drugs to destroy the financial power of the drug cartels.

    “I no longer live in the US but, this young man won my HEART with his humanity and balanced thinking. It has been a very long time since I have heard anyone in political pursuit talk about human need and not one specific group or another. He speaks of what we all need. I left USA in 1976 and only been back for two short visits to family. I have no desire to live there when you look at what the US does from the outside you are heartbroken if you are in touch with your human side at all. Voters know this no one is picking on the US, rather it's the US picking on any and everyone with OIL. Even you should know this, without doubt, just look at what the WH is trying to do in Iran and Venezuela. Don't let any more of our men and women die to make greedy people rich. Bring them home and fix the infrastructure of the country and everything else that has been disregarded for the sake of these GREEDY BASTARDS.”

First Goal Reached!

Thanks to 19 total donors, we reached our goal.  The most common donation is $27.  A lot of us wouldn't be involved in politics now if it weren't for Bernie Sanders running in 2016.  I will be as consistent with my moral principles as he's been for decades.  I will NEVER give in to corruption. I will NEVER cower to the powerful.  And I will ALWAYS fight for what is just and moral.  Thank you.  And if you know any Progressives thinking about running for office, encourage them to run! 

Campaign created!
