Why should voters elect you?
"We are at a crossroads for the District. The city is in crisis due to the failed policies and lack of real leadership of the status quo. We propose a new agenda which emphasizes investments in human assets. I was the first to introduce cutting class size in half, and rebuilding UDC bigger and better than ever. Studies show that by increasing the educational opportunity, and investing in good neighborhoods and good public services, you create an environment that encourages good careers to come and stay. Vote D.C. Statehood Party in November, a viable, progressive alternative to the status quo."

What do you want voters to know about you?
"I am a financial planner. I have managed and owned businesses and met payrolls."
