I am retired and work part time at Home Depot. I live in Newburyport, MA. I am a volunteer facilitator for Smart Recovery meetings.
I identify as an independent voter. The two major parties have become enemies and have abandoned cooperation and common sense to solve problems of governance and civil society and the appropriate collection and allocation of public funds for national security, social security, employment, environmental protections, public safety, healthcare, education and wellbeing.
I would like to see the death penalty abolished in all states and the federal government. It is barbaric and unnecessary. I favor major prison and criminal justice reform to end mass incarceration and end private for profit prisons.
Elect our officials to serve for the common good of the people and not for their self interests. Establish and maintain fair laws that favor business growth combined with fair labor standards and protections.
