We Will Not Be Left Behind

Last night, I attended “We Will Not Be Left Behind” at the Malone Center. This event was a presentation on the effect of Trump’s proposed budget cuts on the poor and working families. As we can expect, all of the proposed budget cuts would effect those who are already struggling. At the same time, Trump plans to present a deficit financed tax cut that would largely benefit the wealthy.

One of the more interesting takes was that every religious congregation in America would have to raise an additional $714,000.00 every year for the next 10 years to to make up for the Trump/Fortenberry budget cuts. That would amount to $500 per family per month. Several faith leaders at the meeting said that would probably be an impossible goal.

I’m running for Congress because Fortenberry and Trump are taking us in the wrong direction. If you want different results out of Washington, you will have to vote for different people. The current all GOP government in D.C. is a failure. We can do better!

I’m a trial lawyer, a Democratic activist and a sports fan.
