Fair Paychecks--Economy

Your paycheck should stay in your wallet! My economic plan includes a safety net, but not a gift basket.

 

Our district needs quality jobs with equal pay for equal work so both women and men can support their families. Women should never work for 18% less money . To get there, I support a competitive business environment, balanced trade, liability reform, net-neutrality, and smart investments in our district.

I support a $15/hour livable wage because working people deserve a fair paycheck. Multiple part-time jobs should add up to full-time benefits.

Health Care

America needs affordable essential health care. It must include pre-existing conditions, reproductive health, CHIP, and students to age 26.  To get there, Congress needs to partner with Apple, Amazon, Harvard, CVS, and health providers to improve care and lower costs. We need to negotiate medicine in bulk, regulate costs, limit medical liability, and help promote healthy living. 

Medicare is a promise we made to our Seniors and those receiving Social Security disability. The only way to prevent Medicare and Social Security from failing is to prevent "Medicare4All" from passing.  It will cause 150 Million+ people including tens of thousands of families in our district to lose work and union policies overnight. I am the only candidate who will vote NO on "Medicare4All". It is a working-class tax taken directly from the bottom line in your paycheck. AARP does not support HR676.

Rep. Lynch sponsored "Medicare4All" for years (HR 676). He also voted NO on the ACA/ObamaCare.


My Dad died at age 68 from a stroke and my Mom had heart surgery. Health care is personal to everyone.

Clean Air--Environment

I am committed to clean air, clean water, and open space. My campaign logo is a big, blue Earth.


Clean energy must work with industry to be successful. Traditional energy sources are part of our economy, but they need to have pipelines which avoid population centers and environmentaly critical areas (e.g. Weymouth & Keystone). 

If elected, I will push to build the North South Rail Link. Rep Lynch does not support it. This project removes cars from the roads, increases access to public transportation, and prevents construction of a massive rail yard by the Seaport. It is time to connect the North and South stations. Keep Boston beautiful!

Peace--National Security

War votes do not make you safer.  I am tired of wars.

Rep Lynch voted YES for war in Iraq and NO on leaving Afghanistan. 

Our kids deserve their prom instead of boot camp.


I served over 20 years as an officer, fighter pilot, and drone commander.  After six deployments. I want PEACE for the next generation. 

Our nuclear codes need to be under the control of two people. The President should not have absolute authority.

 

Education

I support our K-12 public school system and our teachers. Washington should send money so teachers get a fair paycheck instead of sending standardized tests and advice on how to teach our kids.


It is time to stop high-stakes testing because kids shine in many ways including art and music.

I trust our teachers. My father-in-law taught in the Randolph public schools for decades. 

Seniors

 

Seniors earned their Golden Years.


Cutting benefits for seniors is like forgetting a promise.

I intend to protect seniors by fighting Medicare and Social Security fraud. I will also push for government regulation of medication prices to prevent gouging and save money. We need to integrate business, insurance, and Seniors into a healthy tommorrow.

 

Logan Airport Noise

 

The FAA needs to listen to communities about noise levels.


As an airline pilot, I fly to many airports in Europe with far better noise procedures than Logan. Communities need a voice in the process and airlines need to use quiet equipment and procedures.

It is time to expand the airports outside of Boston. Many major cities use low-cost airports for overflow.

I bring decades of experience to this problem.

 

College Debt

Far too many graduates are drowning in debt from paying for school.


An educated society helps our economy. I want you to go to college. After graduation, we need small business tax credits so small companies can afford to help pay your loan payments while you gain experience. This will help our local businesses, our towns, and you.

Public Safety

No one has the right to an assault weapon. Everyone has the right to self-defense.

I have not and will not accept NRA money, but I do support the 2nd Amendment and people who follow our laws.

 I believe in our Constitution and the amendments.

 I will vote against assault weapons and high capacity magazines. They only belong with law enforcement. 

Schools need funding now for safe rooms!

Friends

 

I will treat everyone in our district equally and I support my friends in the LGBTQ community. My experience as a military commander is vital to people who simply want to serve their country, but are prevented by the DoD. The LGBTQ flag flies on my website and will fly in my office.

Every person deserves respect. Kindness is important.
