WHY I’M RUNNING
We are living in a time when our country and our communities are more divided than ever, and where disparities in access to opportunities are wider than ever. The very fabric of our country requires fresh leadership and a renewed commitment to shared values.
“Here I am”
I am running for Congress in Massachusetts 4th Congressional District because I have the experience to bring our communities together to make real lasting change and ensure that the wheels of justice turn for all of us, not just a privileged few.
Making real lasting change is never easy. Creating opportunities that lift up our neighbors is hard work. Through my non-profit advocacy and community work and as a father of 4 children, I have witnessed how powerful a community can be when it is united. NOW is the time for us to stand together and act. NOW is the time to say NO MORE to the hatred and bigotry that is dividing our country. That is the type of community where I want to live and raise my children. That is the type of community we all deserve. I am ready, willing and able to unite our community to strengthen all those within it.
I am proud of the life that my wife and best friend for over 20 years, Gabrielle and I have built. Together, we have raised 4 beautiful children in Brookline. Like most working families in the 4th Congressional District, we have faced financial burdens with significant childcare costs, student loan debt, and mortgage and car payments. However, I also recognize how lucky I am to have had mentors and advocates providing me with opportunities others were not afforded. I have dedicated my adult life to building, connecting and strengthening different communities, ensuring all of us have access to the same opportunities, and that no one is discriminated against based on who they are, who they love, how much money they earn, or where they live.
That is why, as your next Congressman, I will fight for equitable access to high-quality public education from early childhood to higher education, for universal and affordable healthcare, for comprehensive and compassionate immigration reform, for social and economic justice, including combating climate change, to eliminate the inequality gap and increase economic opportunities, and to combat the rise of hatred, bigotry and Anti-Semitism in ALL forms against ALL people.
I can’t do it alone. We are running an open, welcoming, inclusive campaign because we are tired of being divided by this administration, because we want to push for real lasting change, and because We the 4th are stronger together.
