I will not seek election to the US House in California’s 12th district (SF) for 2018. This was a hard decision, however my personal/family life at this time does not have room for the massive undertaking of running for Congress.
During this campaign we have struggled mightily to get any coverage from the press. While many good progressive outlets have covered our work, we have been entirely ignored by San Francisco's two major papers (both owned by Hearst Corporation), the news networks, the TV anchors, the national magazines and mainstream media at large.
TPP stands for Trans Pacific Partnership. It’s bad. If you don’t know what it is, or haven’t heard of it, here is a quick explainer.

The truth is that the powerful Dems have much more in common with the powerful Republicans than any of them have in common with us!
Last week, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi claimed that the recent hack of the DNC emails was an 'electronic Watergate.' For most folks, hearing the former Speaker of the House liken the recent release of DNC emails to the Watergate scandal just seems silly.
Wealth inequality is a massive problem. It threatens the very existence of our nation, and yet, Congress seems unable to reverse the tide. The truth: Congress and especially leaders in Congress, work every day to make things worse.
We won in the primary. So did Pelosi. Now it's just Pelosi and Picus in the general election. No Republican, no other 'spoilers' for Nov. 8th. People are starting to get very excited - we're bringing the progressive revolution to Congress.
We got an email from a Republican the other day asking, “What do liberals have against Pelosi? I thought she was one of your favorites.”
And while it is true that Congresswoman Pelosi has a relatively ‘liberal’ voting record, she isn’t a progressive and she doesn’t represent the average American. With respect to the accomplishments of Congresswoman Pelosi, allow me to outline our argument for voting her out of office.
