We all live here.
It seems odd to have to state a position on the issue of hate and intolerance. But, somehow, racism, sexism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia and religious intolerance have become the political currency of Donald Trump's presidency and the GOP’s policies. As your representative, I pledge to use my voice to fight back against Trump’s divisive, anti-American, and intolerant rhetoric. My office, and my approach to public policy, will be inclusive, welcoming, and sensitive to the needs of all minorities – whether you are a religious minority, an undocumented immigrant, a member of the LGBTQ community, a person with a disability, or you belong to any other minority group, you will be treated with the respect and dignity that should be afforded to all humans, simply for being human. Hate will have no home in my office. We will welcome AND celebrate diversity in all of its forms. We will honor the many vibrant cultures that make up the beautiful tapestry of the 4th District. And, we will vocally oppose and reject intolerance in all its forms.
