Focused on the Future
of Wisconsin Democrats
is an attorney and long-time Democratic progressive activist, serving primarily as Voter Protection counsel. He was born, raised, and graduated from high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He received his S.B. (scientiae baccalaureus) degrees in Electrical Engineering and Political Science from MIT and his law degree from Case Western Reserve University.
He has called Milwaukee his home for many years.
He is passionate about justice and the equal delivery of constitutional rights for all.
The days of Wisconsin being a Fly-Over state are over.
In order to deal with the current situation in which we have lost control of the U.S. House, Senate, and White House and lost the opportunity to place a moderate jurist on the U.S. Supreme Court, we must organize and face the future with new eyes.
The future of the Wisconsin Democratic Party requires us to create our own plan and to have input at the National Level. We must have vision, unity, and a solid game plan to move forward. Together.
Having my voice at the DNC, representing the Democratic Party and people of Wisconsin, is the only way to insure our needs are heard.
It is imperative for all citizens to be heard and represented. Wisconsin's Democratic voters need my voice at the National level. We are a varied people across our beautiful state that deserve to be heard!
I represent every voice and needs of the rural areas, the urban centers, women, workers, union members, millennials, senior citizens, LGBTQ, Jews, Christians, Muslims, and all others.
Every group has different needs, yet, fundamentally, we all want a living wage, the opportunity to obtain a quality education, equal rights, affordable healthcare, and affordable decent housing.
We must quickly adopt protections for our Environment to make sure that the dismantling of the EPA does not become detrimental to our beautiful state. This position must be adopted and promoted by the DNC.
Please also see my position on the needs of young people across the Nation as requested from the Millennial Forum (Millennial-aged members of Congress) here.
The simple act of voting is the only means by which the power to govern is legitimately conferred in our nation. Protecting the voting process from beginning to end is a necessity.
I have worked at every election since 2002 to make sure every single voter has the chance to cast their ballot and make sure their vote is counted. This is my passion and it drives me to continue.
In these times of electronic hacking and the lack of security of our online data, we must address the lack of security in electronic voting machines. I am an advisor to groups that are inventing new ways to protect our votes - from registration through counting and certifying our votes.
In 2007, two Democratic Secretaries of State, Debra Bowen of California and Jennifer Brunner of Ohio, commissioned studies which established that there were major flaws in the voting system. Specifically, respected computer experts reported to each Secretary of State that the machines used to record and count votes could be tampered with easily either in person or via remote electronic access.
