I’m a retired union and community organizer. I have always been committed to organizing for social and economic justice, believing that we should never give up our power or expect that politicians will do the right thing.

Since the Citizens United decision and the recent McCutcheon decision it has become clear to me that our ability to win on issues and move the country in a progressive direction is severely compromised by the influence of the wealthy and corporations. So we have to take on this fight if we want to restore our democracy – a country where every person and every vote matters.
