I grew up in Jacksonville and watched both of my parents work low paying jobs as a maid and janitor to provide for me and my six siblings so we would have a chance at the American dream. Our current leadership in Washington is not willing to make sacrifices like my parents to ensure everyone has the same chance I did. With my experience and background I can bring change to Washington to better our country and create opportunities for the next generation.

We must bring more accountability and transparency into our political process -- and overturn Citizens United.”
