It is with great sadness that I announce that I am permanently suspending my campaign for State Senate. My responsibilities in fighting for the rights of people with disabilities to live in the most independent setting possible has not allowed me to put forth the effort needed to sustain a campaign that is worthy of the voters of the 55th District.
Voting is important as part of an overall strategy to achieve things we all deserve: universal health care, reversing climate change, dismantling systemic racism, and more. Please keep this in mind this November. Vote for the candidate you feel will best fight for these things. If there isn’t a candidate you feel will do this, please write-in a name to show that you choose “none of the above”.
I would like to thank all of the people who supported me in this endeavor. I truly wish that I could have taken us to victory on November 6th. I would also like to thank the Green Party which gave me the opportunity to run. If you haven’t heard of the Green Party or looked into them, I highly suggest you do so and get involved. As Rosa Clemente once said, they are no longer the alternative, but the imperative.
Again, thank you for all your support and I look forward to continuing to work with you to make our world a better place for everyone.
