I'm a socially tolerant and fiscally responsible Ohioan trying to make things just a little bit better in the Nation's Capitol.
Being a "Centrist" to me does not mean taking the moderate position on every issue. Rather, being a Centrist is about promoting the best outcomes for our communities, no matter which end of the ideological spectrum the solution comes from. I got involved with the Centrist Project because I believe in its mission and leadership. I once heard Nick say that we shouldn't have to choose between a party that believes in math and a party that believes in science. That statement has guided my political engagement for the last few years.
The top priorities for American leaders should be to promote economic growth, restore trust in our institutions, and ensure equal opportunity for our citizens.
We must be confident enough in our own convictions to be able to listen openly to those we disagree with. When we understand the philosophies and incentives of our political opposites, it allows us to identify our shared purpose and make progress towards solving the nation's issues.
