Frequently Asked Questions
Until we meet, here are some answers to a few inital questions you might have
"Can Independents Win?"
In the last general election, over 400,000 people voted from this district. In the congressional race, only 200,000 people voted.
So, half of voters who made their voice heard in the governor's or senator's race did not believe their voice will matter in the congressional race.
In addition, over 68% of registered voters are not affiliated with a political party.
In 2024's Congressional race, I can guarantee your vote will matter.
"Why Do You Need 4,200 Signatures?"
Our District holds 863,000 people. In order to run, you must prove you have support for your ideas by getting people to 'sign on' to your campaign.
Democrats need 25 signatures. Republicans need 50.
Independents need 4,200 OR 1% of the district who voted in the last governor's race.
Each candidate, no matter from what party, should require the same qualifications in order to run.
"Pro Life or Pro Choice?"
We All Want The Same Thing.
We all want to protect our loved ones and ensure that no one has to go through the trauma and pain that comes from abortion. The true answer in our society is better education for women, and especially men, on how to protect yourselves and your partners.
This November, Ohio's Constitutional Amendment on the ballot provides the best compromise we can ask for: Women are given the right to choose until the baby can survive outside the womb (called fetal viability). Once fetal viability is met, there are stronger incentives for adoption, foster care, and support services.
As our science progresses, fetal viability will occur sooner and sooner. Together, by working towards our common goal of love, support, and safety for our community, we can see the end of the need for abortions in our lifetimes.
"What is Congress?"
Congress is made up of two bodies: The House of Representatives and the Senate.
House: Serve 2 year terms, must be 25 years old.
Senate: Serve 6 year terms, must be 30 years old.
I am running for House of Representatives to represent You and your interests.
"You could do any other job. Why go for this?"
I've realized this is how I achieve my dream.
I want a society with better rules. A place where the caring and innovative are incentivized to thrive. Where everyone is given a shot to advance. A government you can trust to focus on root causes for societal problems. I want a life where we ensure the best ideas win, for us and for our future generations. This job is how I can achieve my dream.
"Why not state or local office first?"
Why focus on one state
when we can heal the nation?
As you read this, Ohio is undergoing trial for one of the largest political bribery and corruption scandals in our nation's history. I am planning on improving state and local affairs, for OH-11 and the nation. Many municipalities and states face the same challenges and obstacles. If I were to 'work my way up,' I would become stuck in a setting with people who are not advocating for the best for all of us. Why not improve this great state, and the whole country simultaneously?
