Why should voters elect you?
"Since my election to Congress, I have successfully fought to protect the pay and health benefits of federal workers and led the fight against discrimination in the federal work force. I successfully sponsored legislation to help small-business owners get more federal procurement contracts and have promoted access to capital for small businesses. I have also been a leader in the struggle to preserve affirmative action and reform managed care. I am strongly supporting legislation to provide federal funds to: hire more teachers, build and repair schools, implement national student performance standards. In the past, I fought cuts in school lunch programs."

"I believe good jobs are the key to our community's long-term growth and prosperity. I am committed to advancing legislation that promotes job creation."
