The Democratic Party's potential is realized when bolstered by fresh ideas, youth and energy.
We face a crisis in leadership at every level of government. We have seen needless squabbles that have rendered the act of accomplishing the task of doing the “people’s work” wanting. There was once a time when our elected leaders sought to accomplish great things for this country by looking forward. They met the challenges ahead with a sense of patriotism and purpose, and by knowing that the only way to get things done was to work together and not to retreat to their respective corners that often leads to inaction.
Today, this leadership void has been filled with individuals who have forgotten what it means to be a public servant.
We have lost our way and we deserve better.
Now is the time for us to demand more from our elected leaders.
Now is the time for us to work together and meet the challenges that lie in front of us with a sense of determination.
And now is the time to elect leaders who seek a representative democracy that not only mirrors our own values, but also reflects what is best in us.
That is what this campaign is about.
