Why should voters elect you?
"Your vote for Andy Miscuk is a vote for change. What does D.C. really have to show for the incumbent's 16 years in office?"

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"The 550,000 residents of the District lack what is rightfully ours -- voting representation in Congress. The incumbent delegate has failed to rectify this injustice for 16 years. The most viable plan for voting representation, the Davis bill, was supported unanimously by the D.C. Council but opposed by the incumbent until Andy Miscuk announced his candidacy. When was the last time you saw or heard from the current delegate except when pursuing her own reelection? With the shortest commute in all of Congress, the District deserves a representative who is fully engaged with all our communities."
