My Vision & Mission

What I Believe

We are heading into wartime, still facing leftover economic turmoil from pandemic-related policies and monetary intervention, and we should be at the top of our game to remain competitive and strong as a people and a nation. But our politicians are out of line, inhibiting our growth. I will focus the house on the most important issues relevant to District 5, be a loud and dominant voice, and motivate other great people to step into leadership to get our country going in the right direction for our kids and our joint future. It’s time for a new party, a new guard, a transition, a movement, and a break up of the ineffective two-party system. I am sick and tired of outsourcing political decision-making to lawyers and wealthy businessmen detached from today’s reality.

Immigration

Global immigration flows are changing the dynamics at our southern border, and the federal government is doing nothing to prevent unauthorized people from entering our communities. Over 2 million immigrants entered the United States in 2023, a record high, and only a tiny fraction were deported. The rest are increasing our tax burden and threatening domestic security. We must cap and control the flow of unauthorized immigration with increased border security, increased coordination between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, and the ability to detain and expel criminals and those who pose a threat to our safety.

Economy, Labor, & Artificial Intelligence

Technology companies repeatedly prove they are not accountable for the negative impact their systems create in our society. We must preempt them and prepare for a dramatic shift in the supply and demand of skills as technological advancements proceed. Some sectors most threatened by artificial intelligence are the services, which are a dominant part of the labor market in CD5. Growing up in the district, I was taught that you work hard, any job, with no shame, and work your way up. We must keep these pathways open and keep our hands busy so that we can continue to contribute to the growth of our community. While in Congress, I will seek to attract new manufacturing and robotics jobs and innovation projects that ensure the district is a haven for new technologies and programs to help the community participate in the future of our economy.

Cost of Living & Inflation

 Both parties thought it appropriate to print trillions of dollars due to pandemic-related policies, yet they cannot pass an annual budget. Then, the Fed took it upon themselves to raise interest rates to the highest in more than 20 years. Ordinary people like us have been hit incredibly hard by the high cost of borrowing, soaring food prices, extraordinary home prices, and historically high rents, while wealthy individuals are the richest they’ve ever been on record. 2/3rds of the $42 trillion of wealth created in the first two years of the pandemic has gone to the wealthiest 1% of the world’s people. Wealth inequality is at an all-time high, and Washington is doing nothing but ‘print and spend’. We must cease money printing, ease interest rates, and call for a dramatic reduction in wasteful federal spending.

Education

 Education is critical to achieving a ‘good life,’ but the programs available through traditional academic institutions need to catch up to the labor market and be in touch with the changing pace of the economy. We should be able to reskill people for a fraction of the cost of tuition at a state university, using nuanced solutions to adult learning, the abundance of technology that is available today, and targeted programs that find people with emerging talents or skills, and give them an expedited pathway to a fruitful career, with an income they can own a home and raise a family on. Gone are the days when we sat by while the best jobs went to the children of the wealthiest people, and everyone else was left to pick up scraps or take on extraordinary amounts of debt. It’s time to redefine education, increase accessibility, and help our youth be more competitive in the global economy.

Veterans

 Imagine if the programs we can instantly spin up to print money were spun up for our veterans, some in dire need, educating them on the resources that are available to them from their prior military service, helping them transition back into civilian life, and assisting them in finding new opportunities be it to work in industry, or as an entrepreneur. Our veterans have faced things many of us will not in our lifetimes to protect our freedom, making significant sacrifices for our country. Many of our veterans, when they aren’t able to find options, may turn to alcohol or drugs to deal with their pain. But we should walk hand in hand with them, building and maintaining a robust system that helps veterans use their unique gifts here at home, and we should learn from their commitment to our country. I will advocate for programs to quickly align veterans with the necessary resources they need, including housing, retraining, job preparation, mental health, and awareness programs so that all veterans know who to call and talk to when they are in need, have questions, or need essential assistance. Helping veterans make faster and safer transitions is better for our families and community.

Biography

 I am running for Congress as an average guy from Colorado Springs who comes from humble beginnings. I have watched, up close and personal, the dysfunction in American politics, the lack of dignity and professionalism in the House, and the inability of politicians to represent everyday people like myself. The House struggles to pass common,  recurring bills like an annual budget and to maintain a speaker, and increasingly, Americans are dissatisfied with party politics.

I feel a call to take extraordinary and immediate action to run for Congress in my home region. I worked my way up in the world, first as a tour guide at Cave of the Winds in Manitou Springs, then selling computers at CompUSA and Circuit City on North Academy while I was finishing high school. I took my first corporate job off of Garden of the Gods. I transcended circumstances in education, economics, and my humble beginnings.

I want to inspire others to know that everyday, hardworking people can still influence American political life and not only demand change but lead change.

It’s time to reinstall confidence in our political institutions, protect democracy, and reinvigorate American values and dynamism.

Who better than myself, a student from elementary school to high school in District 11, to represent average folks’ interests in labor, education, the issue of sex and gender, and foreign and domestic security?
