My record speaks for itself: promoting telecommuting and securing federal funds for Dulles rail and other transportation projects; using my chairmanship of the Government Reform Committee to push personnel, procurement and technology reforms that benefit federal employees, local businesses and taxpayers; and working to strengthen homeland security, promote regional disaster preparedness and improve federal-local coordination in battling the region's gang problem."

Security means the availability of a first-class public school education and the protection of promised Social Security and pension benefits. Security means a balanced federal budget and a return to fiscal sanity. It means protecting our environment for future generations. And security means being able to travel across Northern Virginia and our entire metro area safely and in a timely manner."

"I represent the moderate interests and values of the district, unlike the incumbent, who has moved steadily to the right during his tenure in Congress."

Fair ballot access for third party candidates. A push for alternative energy sources to eliminate dependence on foreign oil. End war as a foreign policy of the U.S. Install auditable accounting system in the Pentagon. Close bases in Germany and Japan. Bring troops and support personnel home. Restore civil liberties being abused in the name of national security. Stop running up deficits to support the waste, fraud and abuse in our Pentagon budget."

Why should voters elect you?

"I want to represent the people instead of special interests from which the incumbent has received 50 percent of his donations. Career politicians need to be voted out."
