Thank You for Helping Democracy Grow !

An independent choice for voters on November 6.

With your support, I was able to collect 1,412 ballot petition signatures in my attempt to get on the November 6 ballot for the U.S. House of Representatives as a true independent – a candidate without the backing of any party, organization, or special interest. Those signatures were submitted to the Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) on June 12.

Today we got confirmation from SBE that they had validated more than the 1,000 signatures required to put me on the ballot.  Thanks to all who signed, to all that helped and encouraged, and to all that believe in progress over party.

Throughout this effort, my focus has been on issues and in offering voters a distinct, independent choice for Congress. That focus doesn't – and won't – change.
