Congressional District 30 has one of the highest poverty rates in the country. 38% in 2012. The underlying factors that lead to this disparity are: a less educated workforce, invisible living wage, lack of decent affordable housing and single family homes both women and men. I will work hard to eliminate these prohibitions that contribute to fewer people achieving the American Dream.
Every American deserves quality and affordable healthcare. I will work to improve not repeal the Affordable Care Act, known as “Obama Care”. I will also work for the preservation of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
I will address these issues with a loud voice and energy to bring our district into the 21st Century.
