Protecting Women’s Reproductive Rights
My priority, first and foremost, will be protecting women's reproductive rights - ensuring all women have access to abortion services - that they have full autonomy of their own bodies and their healthcare decisions.
Women should have full access to abortion services and medications. This is an issue between a woman and her healthcare provider.
Corruption in Congress and the Supreme Court
Congress needs to actually address corruption and the influence of dark money. Self regulation is no longer acceptable nor are the continued hollow words and empty promises.
Members of Congress should not be able to trade stock and the Supreme Court should never be able to take outside money.
Basic Human Rights like the right to marry should not be at the whim of each state. Yet, even now, that right is still at risk of being overturned by the Supreme Court.
We need a Congress that is prepared to act and to protect the LGBTQ+ community of all ages from right-wing persecution.
Israel - Gaza:
Ceasefire and Aid
I support and would vote for a ceasefire resolution in Gaza as well as for humanitarian aid for the refugees and others currently being displaced. I would push the Biden administration to do both and it is beyond time for them to act.
Israel’s current course of action in Gaza, the blockades and destruction of infrastructure, will only cause more resentment which will make it easier for Hamas and other terrorist groups to recruit and escalate.
We can’t have a functioning democracy where nothing we see or hear is true. Companies are ultimately responsible for the algorithms they create and deploy.
Ensuring Digital Privacy and Protections
You should be the sole arbiter of what information any company can hold about you. We need protections like GDPR in the EU and we need to create a law forcing companies to delete the information they have about you any time at your discretion
Medicare For All
It is time to make sure every American has health insurance and access to quality health care.
In this country we should not have a system where anyone has to decide between buying medicine or buying food. Nor should a parent have to worry that a child’s broken bone or an elder’s illness will leave them destitute.
We’ve allowed other countries to take the lead on research, development, and manufacturing of clean energy solutions.
We should be investing in those solutions here at home. I want to see Austin as a leader in this area - imagining, designing, and testing the next generation - and would work to make that a reality.
I grew up here in Austin. I have a Bachelors degree in Government from The University of Texas and a Masters degree in International Affairs from Georgia Tech. I’ve spent the last 20 years in the Department of Defense working national security issues, as a cybersecurity professional hunting for advanced persistent threats throughout the world, and as the founder of a cybersecurity startup.
I’m running because I know what it’s like to live without health insurance, to be laid off, to make minimum wage, and to live in debt. I’m running to ensure heath care, reproductive rights, and education are available to all of us, not just a privileged few. I’m running against a status quo that has allowed Roe to fall, threats to the LGBTQ+ community to rise, and economic prosperity to become ever more unattainable to average Americans. I’m running to create a bolder, more progressive Democratic party, with a clear vision that fights back against right-wing extremism and for everyday Americans.
It is time for change in Congress and in this country. It’s time for new leadership and representatives. I understand Austin and Central Texas. I understand Washington and how government should function. And I will accomplish the things I promise to do.
Join with me. Together we will move this country forward.
Together we will change the world
