Why should voters elect you?
"In the two terms I have served, our office has gained formal support from elected officials across the country and taken that support to Congress."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"The most urgent problem facing our city is the lack of representation in the Congress. Because we have no vote, we suffer from a financial imbalance caused by the federal government's presence in our city and its control over our budget, our legislation and our courts."
