Why should voters elect you?
"My campaign urges working people to break from the parties of the ruling rich – the Democrats and Republicans – and chart a course of independent political action. What's needed is a workers and farmers government to advance our interests, not those of the exploiters. I call for statehood for D.C. and for abolishing the financial control board. Jobs for all. For 30 hours work at 40 hours pay to spread available work around. Defend the Cuban revolution. End the U.S. embargo. Lift the travel ban. Condemn Clinton's bombings of Sudan and Afghanistan. U.S. hands off Iraq. NATO troops out of Yugoslavia."

What do you want voters to know about you?
"As a union activist, I stand in solidarity with the new rise of labor resistance in this country and worldwide."
