President Trump’s Policy on Trans Soldiers in the Military

Yesterday morning, President Trump issued a Twitter thread announcing a barring of Trans Americans from serving in our military. 

Yet again, our President announces an ill conceived policy that has no merit and one that harms American soldiers.

An American President should not seek to divide their citizens nor discriminate against any group  based on ignorance.

I am extremely proud of each and every American soldier who has fought for our Nation, no matter their personal identity choices. 

I implore the Administration to reverse this harmful policy immediately and to consult with our Joint Chiefs of Staff before making such policies ever again.

I stand with all of our trans citizens and will never be ok with any form of discrimination against them.

Campaign on the Road – iTunes playlist

As I travel the district, I’m spending loads of time in my car. When I’m not talking with people on the phone, I’m listening to some good music.

I thought I’d share my current playlist. You’ll get to see some of my new favorites, some old favorites, and a bit of “road music”.
