My Top 3 Priorities

  • Bringing an alternative to the gridlock and acrimony that is our two-paty sytem.
  • Address the ever widening gap between the extremely wealthy and the rest of us.
  • End subsidies to fossil fuels. Reinvest in sustainable, renewable and green energy solutions.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Our government is failing us every single day. The ultrarich get tax cuts while the rest of us can barely afford healthcare and a decent education. Our infrastructure crumbles, the right to vote is under siege, yet our so-called representatives do nothing, listening only to wealthy donors—their only true constituency.

I grew up here, went to high school in Oakland, taught at public schools, and worked as a journalist before starting a business here, turning an abandoned space into a successful community hub. I saw firsthand the failure of the federal bureaucracy in response to small businesses during the pandemic.

I’m running as an independent because both parties are failing us. Our entrenched leaders have proved that they’re not up to the job. They don’t play by the same rules as the rest of us. They waste time on divisive identity politics and symbolic legislation while real people, neighborhoods and businesses languish. The acrimony and gridlock are breaking our country. People who work for a living need actual solutions: fair taxation, increased funding for education and scientific research, single-payer healthcare, real support for neighborhood businesses.

If elected, I promise you’ll have a representative who listens to you, fights for you, and is committed to working with all sides to bring real change. I support real campaign finance reform. That’s why I won’t accept money from special interest groups. I won’t be captive to the demands of any party. I will answer only to the needs of you, my constituents.
