I’m a 2020 candidate for U.S. Congress, I’ve lived in Durango 26 years. After driving 5,000 miles over this winter, through mountain pass blizzards, I’ve twice visited all 29 of our 3rd Congressional District counties; meeting, greeting and speaking.
I appreciate the wonderful folks I’ve met on this trip. Your presence, your questions and your suggestions have helped me learn about each county, your concerns and needs.
I am leading on our climate crisis, while addressing four strategic threat areas: Healthy Democracy, Healthy Population, Healthy Economy and Healthy Environment. We are now beset with a highly contagious and rapidly spreading pandemic; please be safe and come out of it whole.
These crises expose the fragility of our societal systems. We are ill prepared to deal with the collapsing of our two-tiered economy. It is a profoundly moral challenge of justice and fairness.
There are economic impacts transitioning from fossil fuel energy to renewables. A just transition through both of these crises can be eased with two major policies: Medicare For All and the Green New Deal. Having worked with system problems all my life as an industrial consultant and systems engineer, I’m the candidate best prepared to address the challenges of the job as your representative.
America faces an ongoing stream of shock events due to pandemics, the collapse of ecosystems and climate emergencies. Everything interacts. That is a systems challenge, requiring systems expertise.
Please vote for Root.
