Why should voters elect you?

"I'm not accepting lobbyist and PAC contributions. I'll work for comprehensive lobbying reform and ending the Iraq conflict. I'll always work for you in Congress."

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

"The most urgent problem facing the 8th District is transportation. It is time Congress began assisting local governments to fund transportation concomitant with population growth. Congress must fund comprehensive 21st-century solutions to long-standing transportation problems. I will sponsor and co-sponsor legislation for transportation infrastructure that will set the national standard: local and inter-urban rail, bus rapid transit, connector buses and shuttle buses, a comprehensive ride-share program, fast passenger ferries, more bridges and tunnels. I will seek funding for highway modernization and construction so that the highway system is designed to anticipate regional population growth."
