My Top 3 Priorities

  • It is urgent that we address climate change from every possible angle
  • Real campaign finance reform is needed before we can expect to reduce the influence of corporate money on our elections and government
  • Health care must be available to everyone. A single payer health insurance program is desperately needed.
