Thank you for visiting and taking the time to learn more about me, our campaign, and how we are going to change tomorrow, starting today.
I am running for Congress because I want to see a better future for our district and our country. For years, my father owned a small business in Mableton. He, like many of you, wanted more for our district. Unfortunately he didn’t live to see the turnaround that we are determined to make happen. My mother is a registered nurse who retired from Wellstar Cobb Hospital after 30 years of providing care for thousands of people. People who want to see change in this district. I have spent years working with children and young adults, who are losing the fight to earn a quality education, find a decent job and have a positive outlook on their future. I have assisted hundreds of military families and veterans, who after years of honorable service, are struggling to find jobs, buy homes and raise their families. My children are attending local public schools where one out of every two children will not graduate. It's time to make a stand.
For far too long, the 13th district has been an area in need of repair. Our schools are suffering, our jobs are disappearing and our future is in serious doubt. I’m running because I am determined to change that. We have a wonderful, diverse group of smart, hard-working people who deserve the kind of leadership and representation that will make a lasting change. From Mableton to Stockbridge and from Douglasville to Riverdale; I have a deep connection to this district, full of family and friends who have asked me to step up and fight for them. I’m running because I want to see every city and town within the district thriving and to see our country again, become the leader in education, job performance and technology advancements. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and watch our government continue to shutdown, play partisan games and ignore the needs of its people.
At 17 years old, I joined the United States Marine Corps because I want to defend and protect our country. I now want to do the same thing for the 13th district as its representative to Congress. As a engineer and architect, I know how to gather facts, analyze data and solve problems. As a global business and community leader, I understand the value of listening, the importance of making informed decisions and how to get the deal done. And as a war-time veteran, I understand what it means to give unwavering support and dedication to things that matter most and how to get the mission accomplished.
I am committed to improving our country's education system; committed to creating new jobs across every sector of our economy; and determined to bring our government services into the 21st century in order to make a more efficient, productive and responsive government that will work for all of us.
We can make these things happen! We can change the future of our district! I promise to bring the kind of leadership and representation that our district and country needs. I want to create communication pathway that allows the people of our district to actually have a say in what goes on in our nation’s capital. I want to hear from young and old; rich and poor and understand all of the wants, needs and opportunities that exist in our district. I want to carry your voice to Washington.
If you want to see real change in our government, better educational opportunities for my children and yours, and promising jobs for our future. I welcome you to become part of my campaign to bring true leadership and representation to Congress.
Together we will make the 13th District a better place to Work, Live, Learn and Play!
Working hard today for tomorrow’s future.
A New Generation of Democratic Leadership
