this STEM-trained candidate isn't politics as usual
This week we celebrate the birthday of Madame Curie - the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize - and National STEM day, a celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Science is all around us, but it is not very well represented in our elected officials. Some fields are overrepresented: although lawyers constitute less than 1% of the voting age population, they comprise more than 30% of today's House of Representatives.
As a member of the STEM community I hope to see more candidates for office that bring STEM skills to office. Far too often, legislators ignore the inconvenient truths of science in favor of politics as usual. STEM-trained legislators, not so much.
STEM-trained people are a great fit for Congress - we are evidence seekers and problem solvers, and we represent a productive change from a status quo that no longer serves the average American. But we're up against powerful forces - I need your help.

In a world that is more and more governed by code and impacted by climate change, the need for STEM-trained representatives has become a matter of not just effective governance but global leadership.
