Thank you for visiting my simple campaign website. I am a very average Alaskan, trying to do something big, because I've been there - I know what it is like. Overcoming the challenges I've faced damn near killed me; if I can spare one person from a similar fate, this campaign will be a success in my eyes.
I am running against the wealth, privilege, and entitlement my opponent represents. Those are the very weapons that have, for centuries, drown out voices like mine.
I am running to amplify the voices of people like me - like us - and bring attention to the problems we face. I am running on a platform of major investment in social, not physical, infrastructure (childcare reform, universal healthcare, internet access, better public schools, paid leave, minimum wage increases).
I am running as a fierce advocate for rural Alaska, I'm trying to be the leader the Bush needs, to win for us direct representation in Washington D.C.
Why not? How well has running the same kind of candidates, EVERY federal election cycle for the last 20+ years worked out for you Alaskan Democrats? Why do you think this race will be any different, especially considering all the chaos in the world? 2020 is supposed to be the year a bland, uninspiring, uncreative, Third Way, Road System moderate finally wins a statewide election?
People beg for someone relatable, who they can identify and connect with. Someone exciting, passionate, someone who cares. Someone who knows what it's like.
The Senate doesn't need any more privileged, wealthy, entitled doctors, lawyers, semisuccessful businessmen and women - wannabe 1%er's. It needs people like us, who are average, humble, resilient, and hard working. People who have fallen hard and worked themselves back up, people who know what it is to want, how it feels to go without....
I hate the mixture of money and politics, but the reality is, we can never fully eradicate it's influences. Still.... It's hard for me to justify asking for money for my political campaign when so many people are suffering... I don't know what the answer is.
If you have a few extra dollars, please considering contributing to the cause....
Stay connected with me and my campaign.
