Personal Motivation:
“Every day I wake up to news of more corruption in our government, broken systems and insurmountable injustices. Every day I see evidence that we will lose our planet, sink deeper and deeper into debt, that the middle class will disappear while the powers that be continuously take advantage of the hard working people that fuel our society. At the same token, every day I wake up grateful that I get to work with hundreds of extraordinary ordinary working people who also recognize this state of emergency facing our nation and have stepped up and pledged to do something about it. “
