The underrepresentation of women in government, especially women of color, is a national disgrace.  Currently, of the 127 women serving in the 116th U.S. Congress, 47, or 37.0%, are women of color.  In addition, a Black woman, a Latina, an Asian Pacific Islander and a Caribbean American woman serve as Delegates to the House from Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands, respectively.  Women of color constitute 8.8% of the total 535 members of Congress.  This is preposterous! 


Today, our country is in a terrible mess.  It seems that many of the men that we've elected to the Congress are making careless mistakes.  These mistakes are costing the American people their livelihoods and in some cases, their lives.  Just like in relationships, when men make messy mistakes, a woman must step in and clean it up. 

In addition, many of the people representing the nation in the U.S. Congress are out of touch with the American people.  Decisions regarding new millennial problems should no longer be made by people that still have 1950s and 1960s mental mindsets.  Times have changed and people have changed. The United States has become more diverse than ever before.  How could a group of mostly very aged people in the U.S. Congress, with the same old traditional ways of thinking, accurately reflect our nation today?  Also, many of them are very wealthy but they enjoy having power. Their actions clearly show that they care less about the American people and the struggles they face on a daily basis.

While issues such as adequate housing, healthcare, amendments to child support, inflation, disparities in education and community policing are still dangling, the biggest problem that has remained since the inception of this country is racism.  It seems that not much has been done lately to really hammer in on this serious issue in which responsibility should be taken at the higher levels of government.  At the end of the day, it is the woman that mainly has to step up to the plate and deal with these issues whether inside or outside of her family life.

Therefore, I, Michelle L. Smith, am running for the U.S. Senate in November 2022 - Democrat for Maryland.  I want to eradicate many of the problems that have plagued us for far too long. I know the struggles of life very well here in America. I’ve been homeless, lived in poverty and have had to rob Peter to pay Paul on many occasions. I’m not wealthy and I’m no stranger to hard work. Also, I have several legislative bills that I want to propose in an effort to resolve issues with adequate housing for our homeless community and our military vets, robust mental healthcare and plastic surgery coverage under the insurance plans,  much needed amendments to the child support laws, community policing and so much more.  It is time to start making things right in our country and it is long overdue.  No one should be able to continue to turn a blind eye to the suffering that has inundated and strained local resources because of the almighty dollar to be made. 

I am asking for donations for my campaign.  Your support will help me with travel throughout the state of Maryland to attend town hall meetings and other relevant democratic functions, keep the campaign website and other communications operational, pay for food and lodging only when necessary, purchase campaign and office supplies when needed, conduct voter drives and production of campaign ads - both digital and print formats for online streaming and possibly on-air time for television.  It is with your support that I will be able to get into the U.S. Senate and help clean things up one mess at a time.  Please spread the word.  Thank you for believing in me.
