General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
I have lived in the District of Columbia for more than 22 years. I've lived in wards one, six and three, where I live now, with my wife and three children. All my kids attend DC public schools. I am President of Horizon Communications, a firm I founded in 1989, which serves the political and public interest communities here in Washington. I have over 26 years of experience working in national politics. I have worked on many national and local campaigns including six Democratic Presidential Campaigns.

I am also running because I feel passionate about the issue of equal representation. We pay higher-than-average federal taxes, fight in wars and bear all the same burdens of democracy; in return we are treated like second-class citizens. Our founding fathers didn't intend to disenfranchise 600,000 citizens. It's wrong and it's tim [Response was truncated to maximum response length of 2000 characters.]
