I really believe in doing what you say, saying what you do, and holding people accountable, including myself.
As an attorney, I also really believe in the power of contracts.
I have now signed the Contract For American Renewal (CFAR). The CFAR contract is based on a, "paradigm-shifting, game-changing way to introduce honesty, integrity, transparency, and accountability, into our electoral process, putting people — the vast majority of U.S. citizens — back in the driver’s seat."
I am extremely proud to announce that I was recently endorsed by #VOTEPROCHOICE, an extraordinary national organization dedicated to mobilizing voters to support candidates that reflect the values of supporting women and minorities’ choices in healthcare and life. They provide reproductive rights support (and accountability) to partners while generating connections and collaborations across movement.
Their partners include:
- The Women’s March
- United States of Women
- Planned Parenthood
- Lady Parts Justice
- Our Revolution
- Credo Mobile, and more.

On January 3, 2017, Congressman Richard Hudson of North Carolina introduced H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. The legislation would allow anyone with a permit from one state to carry hidden, loaded firearms into all other states.
The House passed H.R. 38 this week, making it the first gun bill to receive a vote since the back-to-back mass shootings in Las Vegas and Sutherland, Texas.
