Our national politics have become recklessly partisan, and economic opportunities for middle-class Americans have been steadily shrinking.
Our District was hard hit by the mortgage crisis and recession. Government shutdowns and threats of debt default hinder our fragile recovery. Young people entering the job market face an uncertain future. We must invest in education and job skills, support small and medium-sized businesses, and guarantee economic opportunity to the next generation.
If elected I will do everything in my power to restore civic trust and economic opportunity for our community and the nation as a whole.

I also want to thank those who could not attend caucus last night but have supported the Jim Read for Congress campaign in other ways. Your continuing support is essential to our efforts. (more... )
