Life can change on the turn of a dime.
It is with sadness that I had withdrawn from my City Council race.
And it is with great joy that I request formally that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announce her candidacy for United States President for the year of 2024.
Come join me in and around Washington, D.C. for A Festival of Hope: A Journey of Light, from Jan. 5-11, 2022 to celebrate the leaders who inspired us, and those who will. Please use the hashtag #AOC2024 and start similar hashtags with this on your social media. If you’re interested in organizing our festival in your own town, please contact your local electeds and adhere to your town’s local laws and regulations.
(If you bring children, please consider this a “political Woodstock,” and be aware of laws regarding cannabis consumption. To vendors and enjoyers of cannabis, please follow local regulations and also be cognizant of the presence of minors when consuming.)
(For vendors of dog/pet items and treats, please CLEARLY LABEL your food and stand/cart “FOR PET CONSUMPTION ONLY.” Please do not sell both human items and dog items at your stand. You must choose one per day when you register. Thank you.)
I look forward to our next year together,
A BOLD NEW VISION
Now more than ever, we need leaders in every level of government who come from the working class and who are dedicated to fighting inequality and injustice. Let’s build a just, robust country, and elect the best leader in the Free Western World to do just that.
Let’s hope she accepts.
A BOLD NEW VISION
Now more than ever, we need leaders in every level of government who come from the working class and who are dedicated to fighting inequality and injustice. We don’t have much time: we’re going for the Hail Mary. What choice do we have?
I’m a local writer, and for the past seven years, I’ve seen the writing on the wall. Police armed like soldiers, given a license to kill. Laws written by landlords. Day after day, season after season, climate records burning away. This is a system that cannot, and will not, be sustained.
This is a system that could work, but will not work, because it shuts out the voices of the meekest; the voices we need most.
We need a bigger megaphone.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the biggest, baddest, LOUDEST of the Justice Democrats, an organization I modeled my City Council run on.
What is a Justice Democrat?
Well, consider them like a regular Democrat. Except that one person is about 35-40 Democrats packed into one. One person, in one room. And sometimes we get five of them in one room.
Imagine my excitement at a Justice Democrat as President.
Who can be a Justice Democrat?
DON’T ACCEPT CORPORATE DONATIONS.
There was a Justice Republican in 2016. And I would vote for a Justice Republican. But he didn’t win his primary. Corporate money drowned out his voice.
Which is why it’s important we support our best candidates any way we can: financially; volunteering time; and sharing our excitement for a real, sustainable future, with those we love and who love us.
Because when they’re in office, they’re our seat at the table. Call one. Talk to them. Ask them questions.
Can you do that with your Representative and Senator?
Trust me. You’ll see.
