It’s been 7 years

But it all comes down to today Hi John,   My political journey began 7 years ago in June of 2015, when my 22 year old daughter, Shalynne, died at the hands of our nation’s broken, profit-driven healthcare system. She wasn’t given the appropriate care at a local ER, all because she couldn’t provide …

Deepwater Dina

Dear John,  In April of 2010, the world watched in horror as unimaginable flames shot out of BP's Deepwater Horizon.   For months, we saw pictures of oil-soaked fish, birds, and wildlife flash before our eyes.

“The worst district in the state”

"The worst district in the state."That's what our deeply entrenched, corporate-funded opponent, Dina Titus, has to say about us and our district. Hearing a sitting representative talk about her own constituents like this is shocking, but coming from a career politician who’s always had the system …

I am sick and tired of the do-nothing Democrats in our Party

John, in 2020, we “voted blue” just like they asked—and we gave them majorities in BOTH Houses of Congress along with the White House.  In exchange, they told us they would cancel student debt, decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, end cash bail, institute a $15 per hour minimum wage, low…
