An unpaid U.S. Senator, I am elected and then neglected. Ending "taxation without representation" in DC is what I work for every day.
My name is Michael D. Brown and since 2006 I have served the people of the District of Columbia as their volunteer United States Senator. That’s right, volunteer U.S. Senator.
No salary, little funding and just recently a law was passed that will provide matching funds for candidates – but my office was purposely left out because it represents the interests of the people and not that of the elected officials that created the law.
Elected like all other senators (receiving nearly 207,000 votes in the last election), I serve a six-year term representing the citizens of the District.
My job is to secure equal rights for the 700,000 hard-working, tax-paying Americans who live in our nation’s capital and have no voice because they have no vote.
Since 1801, DC residents have been denied the basic civil rights of full citizenship – even though they pay the highest per capita taxes in America, serve in the military at higher than the national average and in every way have been exemplary citizens for more than 200 years.
We are the only country in the world that does this and I fight every day to end this tyranny of taxation without representation.
So please watch the video and consider making a small donation so that I can get re-elected and continue the fight. I’m counting on you.
Thank you for listening!
