I'm proud to report that, during the most recent election cycle, we took our model of small donor empowerment to the next level. My campaign enlisted the support of thousands of citizens across the 3rd Congressional District and beyond -- citizens who are determined to fight back against the influence of big money in Washington.
We are moving into a new phase, establishing chapters wherever people are ready to declare, "My voice ... does count! Our mission is to build support for meaningful campaign finance reform, with a special focus on the Government By the People Act (HR 20).
I hope this webpage is a good resource for you to get involved with our efforts; keep up with political news and information; and learn more about where I stand on the major issues facing our nation. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have feedback or any questions.

This year’s Baltimore Pride week takes on special significance this year, after the violence in Orlando. To learn more about the events taking place click here: http://baltimorepride.org/
I am proud of the great strides we have made as a nation over recent years when it comes to making sure every American, no matter who they love, is treated equality. We have seen the reversal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in our military, marriage equally passed on a national level, and just last month President Obama named Stonewall National Monument in New York City the first national monument to LGBT rights.
However, the GOP's recently released platform has been named the most anti-LGBT platform ever. We need to push to make sure that Democrats win in November to ensure the progress we've made in recent years isn't reversed.

Last week the House passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 which included the Co-Prescribing to Reduce Overdoses Act (HR 3680) -- a bill I authored to help expand access to overdose reversal drugs like Naloxone. I believe the Co-Prescribing to Reduce Overdoses Act is an important tool in fighting the opioid epidemic in our country. I was proud to serve on the conference committee that worked to iron out the differences between the House and Senate bills. This package also passed in the Senate last week and has been sent to the President’s desk for his signature.
