I pledge to represent the people, not big money donors. I will refuse any contributions from real estate developers, corporate PACs or corporate lobbyists.
I pledge to fight for people’s rights to be treated fairly and respectfully, to have equal access to opportunities and resources, and for the right of people to earn a livable wage.
At the end of the day we’re all neighbors, which means we’ve all decided to be part of one community. We are all in this together and we share a responsibility with each other. This is why I pledge to have people’s lives always come first in government decisions, starting with our most vulnerable neighbors.
