Why should voters elect you?

"I am the only candidate for fundamental change running against two status quo candidates. I put the interests of people before the special interests."

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

"The most urgent problem facing our nation is ending corporate control of government, as that is at the root cause of the war in Iraq, the lack of health care for all, the rich-poor divide and stagnant wages for most families. My tax plan makes the first $100,000 federal income tax-free, a 22 percent raise. I want to restore civil liberties and prevent terrorism with sensible foreign policy. I want to end our addiction to fossil fuel for our environment, economy and national security as part of a 21st-century economy. I favor an immediate, rapid, responsible withdrawal from Iraq."
