Chris on the Issues

“For better or for worse, I am not a political insider.”

“Who I am starts with who I am not. I believe that the residents of District 1, like people everywhere, have had their fill of insider, legacy politics, of being governed by a political elite – in short, of politics as usual.

Like everyone in District 1, I would like to make a positive difference in our community. I am not a political insider. This is not a stepping stone for me.”
