What do you see as the top three issues in this race?
- To fix our dysfunctional government, we must move beyond guns, abortion, healthcare, and taxes.
- To fix our dysfunctional government, we cannot expect intelligent and qualified decisions from people who do not understand our rapidly changing society and technologies.
- The last 30 years have shown that we cannot fix our dysfunctional government with a piecemeal approach. To move our nation into the 21st century, we must have an inclusive, comprehensive engineering approach that values opposing views and beliefs, understands and embraces existing technologies, and fosters and promotes new and emerging technologies.
