3 favorite endorsements for this election Governor Jim Hunt; Republican NC Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr; and my wife, Laura (a children’s attorney and superstar mom of four)
First, to put country over party and help end the partisan gridlock in Washington. Second, to represent those who Washington politicians have left behind by fighting for affordable healthcare, better jobs, and the promise of social security.
Affordable education is key for getting ahead. I support expanding job training and community college programs, making Pell Grants year-round, and ensuring the government doesn’t profit off of student loans.
As a Marine who carried an M-16 and a father, I support comprehensive background checks and closing the gun show/online loopholes that let guns get into the wrong hands.
Our broken immigration system is just another example of Washington failing. I support a comprehensive and bipartisan immigration reform that respects our laws, secures our border, and upholds our values.
I’m for raising the minimum wage and support equal pay for equal work.
I fully support restoring the Voting Rights Act because it’s the right thing to do.
Experience (35 words max) Thirty years as a financial markets and banking professional, multiple roles at major banks, involved in education and career counseling, written and published widely.
3 favorite endorsements for this election Christian Cano, Democratic Nominee 2016 for District 9; Nic Haag, Republican Candidate for NC House District 97; Tim Harris, Libertarian, Candidate for State Senate District 2
Presidents work with Congress. When our military acts, accountability is critical to keep peace. I will reduce tensions by expanding our trade relations without favoritism and subsidies. Taxpayers get a fiscally sound, pro-peace candidate who preserves freedom and economic dynamism.
A student finance system must fix both rising debt and costs. Teacher pensions can hold a stake in student debt to align their financial interests with long term educational success.
Teachers can opt for better training, schools for security, parents for monitoring of troubled youth, doctors for treatment regimens, police for tracking real threats. Banning weapons is a losing strategy.
I support family preservation, expanded trade and worker mobility. The path to citizenship should be fair, clear and strictly enforced. ICE unfortunately abuses its power and subverts our constitutional protections.
Government cannot determine prices or wages. Pay equity can be adopted unilaterally by fair businesses.
I oppose intrusion into states' electoral processes though federal review was necessary 50 years ago.
