I am running for the United States Congress as a Democratic Candidate in Nevada's 4th District.
I am challenging a popular incumbent because I firmly believe that this district - which includes the Las Vegas historic West Side, North Las Vegas, and our rural friends in Lyon, Esmeralda, Lincoln, Mineral, Nye and White Pine - all deserve a representative who is present and plugged in to the district, represents the interests of the folks who elected them rather than casino execs and corporate donors.
Our current representative says all the right things, but his record of corporate backed centrist policies have had the opposite effect.
From Jan 2013 to Mar 2020, our D4 representative missed 170 of 1,991 roll call votes. That’s 8.5% of his total votes, and is much higher than the average of 2.2% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving.
The 2020 caucus was a referendum on the REAL pulse of this district - and that pulse beats with progressive ideas and policies that strengthen our great Nation rather than continue to placate the wealthiest among us and keep us divided by an ever-growing wealth gap.
We struggle to afford healthcare if we can even find it. Our kids struggle to keep up in a State where education has never been a priority. Our historic West Side properties continue to lose value and I wonder when the pennies-on-the-dollar gentrification will start. We continue to try and function in an economy where the cost of living increases and the rate of inflation make it almost impossible to support a family of 4 on stagnated wages.
I’m a mom. I’m trying to navigate this broken system from deep in the trenches. I know where you’re struggling because I’m struggling there too. I’m tired of DC lip service from politicians who make back room deals that only enrich the folks who never seem to “trickle it down” to the rest of us. We’re working harder for less, and I know that’s not sustainable.
This is not a future that I want to leave for my kids - and I know you want a better future for your kids, your friends and family, and for YOU too.
As your elected representative, I pledge that I will listen to you. I will meet with you. I will genuinely care about the hurdles you face every day just to put food on the table, and we will work together to find a solution.
You certainly can’t please all of the people all of the time - but if we can start with talking TO each other rather than AT each other, it’s a start.
D4 deserves to have have a representative in DC that’s actually going to work every day to improve the lives of the people who call it home.
Let’s stop the current madness and put forth REAL plans to move this great Nation forward.
I hope you’ll join me to shake a few things up 🇺🇸♥️
