PARTISAN GRIDLOCK

Partisan bickering in Congress makes it difficult just to pass a budget. Grandstanding has replaced negotiating; many members focus more on generating soundbites than passing the legislation their constituents need. With 90% of the House in non-competitive districts, primaries determine who will go to Washington. This pushes both parties toward extremes rather than common sense at the moderate center. Voters deserve better from their representatives. 


If elected, I will:


  • Work to promote the common good;

  • Reach across the aisle to advance the priorities of CD7 constituents; and

  • Never forget that my job performance is measured in the legislation I help to pass, not the media attention I generate.
