"We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late."
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
I am running because I felt what Dr. King called the "Fierce Urgency of Now."
I am running because I understand there is such a thing as being too late, and if we fail to heed the urgency of the moment the results will be disastrous.
I am running because voters deserve an opportunity to elect a representative who will take "vigorous and positive action" to move our nation forward. As Dr. King said in 1963, "This is no time for apathy or complacency." This still holds true in 2020. We deserve a representative who will speak truth to power and be a beacon of light in very dark places.
Our nation is crying out for strong, bold, progressive leadership. The times demand we elect experienced leaders who understand the fierce urgency of now. Leaders willing and prepared to embrace the challenge of change. I am that leader.
What we do in this moment will reveal what we believe.
