I am seeking the seat vacated for personal reasons by David Englin (D). First, I thank David for his service and wish him well on his future endeavors.
Although David has already endorsed another candidate, I note the following on his website:
I wish whoever is reading this to know that I represent and reflect these positions. I strongly believe in marriage equality and relaxed immigration laws. I applaud David's accomplishments on these issues. I also share socially-minded people's goals of quality education, a practical drug policy, and privacy rights.
In addition to my strongly "progressive" social views, I hold strongly "conservative" fiscal views -- meaning that in order to reach the common goals we all share, I think an element of competition is the best way to produce effective results. To that end, I also advocate minimal taxes and reduced regulation. Please see the platform section for more information.
Again, I wish David well in the next chapter of his life and ask for the support of like-minded voters who are socially tolerant and fiscally responsible.
