I am the proud father of a wonderful daughter who we raised in the 5th District. My
work in several environmental initiatives over the last decade at the state and federal level serendipitously
led me back to public service since completing my tour of duty in the Army after graduating from West Point.
Other than my NATO service in Europe, this area has been my home since elementary school. Proud to be the son
of "The Greatest Generation," the values that my parents, Aunts, and Uncles taught me remain the cornerstone
of my personal philosophy and political platform. Like the Founding Fathers, my religion, is quite literally,
"Americanism." The role of government is to support its citizens' well being, right to happiness, and the
natural environment we are blessed with. Interestingly, a high quality of life is not always measured solely
in GDP growth. These values, along with my diverse professional experiences foster an integrated, practical,
creative common-sense approach to political conundrums. I believe in the American values of patriotism,
gratitude, fairness, security, compassion, and independence from political party dogmas. t\Thanks to my
experience on Wall Street, in the military, and as a teacher, I am well-versed in the inner-workings of
American banking, global military strategy, and the most effective methods to raise education standards in the
United States. I strongly support sports in our schools,, having benefited from intense ice hockey training.
3 key messages of my campaign
Yes, "it's the economy stupid" Economic Justice is paramount to ALL American citizen. A
free, but FAIR market .70% of our economy is consumer-driven This would include protecting our citizens from
unfair interest rates, especially in light of the current 0% interest rate Fed policy through 2023. Additionally
savers have a right to competitive interest rates, instead of being coerced to risk. Corporate tax rates need to
be progressive, just like individuals, so that the global behemoths can help fund the great nation that
buttresses their success, while giving the smaller entrepreneurs and consumers a fairer field to participate in.
Environmental Protection is a key economic driver we transition to a less wasteful
economy. A transition from fossil fuels should include a large component clean carbon-free nuclear energy,
raising the US to 40% from the current 20% Nuclear, at the moment, still, reduces noxious gases more than wind &
solar combined. As DECADES of data show, nuclear energy has been proven safe, Bill Gates' TerraPower is onboard
with my platform.
I support an even greater investment in our national defense, coupled, of course,
with great diplomacy, as demonstrated by the current Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. Without safety & security
on a global basis, as well as domestically on our city streets, we cannot move forward with our noble goals of
enhanced environmental protection, economic fairness, and a more representative government.
What qualities does the U.S. House of Representatives possess that makes it unique as an
The US House has the unique strength of having the greatest number of members- in fact that number should be
doubled to provide even better representative government for the citizens, and increase the correlation of the
electoral college to the popular vote. A simple idea with a double win-win! However, this advantage of the
House in fostering representative government for its constituents is lost when the two-party system coaxes
members to too often vote strictly along party lines. This dissuades creative thinking, and leads to more
divisiveness that hinders speedy political compromise. Our economy and environment has little time to waste!
We need more independents in the House! This binary-event system is, for sure, NOT the most effective!

The greatest challenge to the United States are the still present military challenges of a very small number of
rogue states and the acceleration of environmental degradation from very small changes in the Earth's sensitive
ecosystem balance of temperature, ocean acidity, and atmospheric chemical composition, as adversely influenced
by the modern economic model. The third challenge is internal, and the easiest to remedy, that being the
destruction of the economic model of the past that correctly balanced capital and labor to sustain the long-term
success of DOMESTIC United States economy.
