I grew up in a middle class family, where we learned that if you work hard and play by the rules—in America—anything is possible. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college and I helped start a small family business. As a city councilman and state representative, I have been a consistent, determined voice for middle class families just like the one I grew up in. I am proud to represent a new generation of Democrats, and a new generation of political leaders—socially progressive, supportive of small business, and unafraid to stand up to special interests.
