Statement: As a grassroots organizer tackling poverty, I gathered your stories and took them back to the Capital. Together we were able to start making changes to the payday loan industry and in restoring voting rights to disenfranchised citizens. I learned how important it is that you put people in office who hear what you say and take action accordingly to benefit the people not just corporations. I want to make sure your voice is heard while making the changes we want to see; better education, fiscal responsibility in government and local job creation now.
