Why should voters elect you?

"We represent a new way of looking at issues in Maryland. We need a working-class perspective in Annapolis."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"The main problem we have in Maryland is the corporate control of our General Assembly. We see it, for example, in the sellout to Constellation/BGE in the form of incredible rate increases. Our plan is to take over the private utilities and power lines through eminent domain. We call it 'Marylandization.' Additionally, if we were to close the corporate tax loopholes and make the largest corporations pay their fair income tax like the rest of us, we could see up to $3 billion in revenues."
