I have been elected to represent Bernie Sanders voters in Virginia's First Congressional District at our Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. I will advocate for the policies that Bernie has outlined.

To learn  more about Bernie's positions on the issues:

The Democratic Party can do more to solve the multiple problems confronting our nation and the world. There is no time left for status quo politics; we need a REVOLUTION.

I'm packing for Philly. The cat thinks he's going too.
I am on track to show up when and where I should be, vote for Bernie, vote for a progressive party platform, possibly participate in a floor fight over the rules (super delegates anyone?), and meet and build relationships with progressive Bernie delegates from all over the country.
I am please to report that I have raised $1840 on GoFundMe and another $400 in direct contributions for a total of $2074.
My current predicted expenses are $3267 ($1222 more than the $2K I had originally estimated).
Thank you for your donations and your support. You empower me to speak up for the values we share - as outlined on the "Issues" page of Bernie Sanders campaign website. Please share this communication with like-minded folks.
On to Philly!

I am so grateful to those who have donated to defray the cost of traveling to Philly for the Democratic National Convention.

I have signed up for two workshops during the first day of the convention, both organized by the Sanders campaign. The first is on the “Trans Pacific Partnership and Fair Trade” and the second is called “The Revolution Continues: Progressive Candidate and Engagement Training.” I look forward to learning more and meeting like-minded progressives.

Bernie gave a great interview with USA Today – I recommend that you check it out.

You can read my report on a conference call earlier this week where Bernie covered this material – and my interpretation his positions.
