Building a New American Dream
It's becoming harder and harder for regular Americans to get by in today's economy. Wages have been stagnant for years while corporate profits and productivity have never been higher! The American Dream is quickly becoming an illusion for many of us. We can no longer promise our children that if they just work hard, they'll be able to afford a house of their own and someday retire with money and time to enjoy their golden years.
For the strongest nation in the world, this is unacceptable!
We must hold our elected officials accountable and vote people into office who understand the changing economy and how best to adapt to it. We have to bring new jobs in emerging fields to rural areas and provide the training and infrastructure to support exciting new industries that will breathe new opportunities into our communities.
I am running for Congress to bring a stronger, more dynamic economy to southern New Mexico so that we can begin to build a New American Dream that will give every working person a real shot to build a strong future for themselves and their families.
Hello and welcome to my campaign website! Like many Americans, I am frustrated with the current state of American politics. Too much bickering. Too much anger and hate.
While I understand this frustration, I am also hopeful. We can never lose hope because it's hope that can, and always does, defeat hate.
In all the bitter partisan squabbling, our politicians have lost site of the Big Picture, of the simple daily struggles of real hard-working Americans. We just want opportunity. We want effective schools for our children. We want honest jobs that pay fair wages and benefits. We want to continue enjoying the wonders of nature and access to public parks.
These are not complicated issues. Americans have simple, modest desires. Yet our politicians work only for corporate interests and play the working class against each other through divisive rhetoric and meaningless posturing over hot-button issues. All the while, we suffer, exploited to feed the wallets and egos of career politicians and their corporate donors.
This has to change, and it can change! We have the power, together as a collective voice, to make important changes and build a new American dream for the modern world.
