Derickson K. Lawrence for Congress
Thank you for placing my name on the ballot for the Democratic Primary on June 26, 2018! Make no mistake, this election and campaign belong to you!
Please join me on May 21st for the "Building the Coalition" rally.
We are running for the following reasons:
a) Our incumbent has literally stopped solving problems in our district -- for the past decade; as such,
b) We deserve a representative that will proactively and aggressively champion the needs of the district;
c) to give voters an authentic choice on June 26, 2018.
In my view, our incumbent is compromised because some 96% of his funding comes from special interests, PACs and big corporations. Despite his rhetoric of “A” ratings, his voting record (domestic and foreign relations) tells a different story. It’s time for a change.
I am the only authentic choice in this primary. The insane world of Trump has paralyzed an already grid-locked Congress. We need a Congressman who can cast votes that benefit the people, and who can solve problems in the district. My varied background of private and public experience has prepared me for this role. Further, my 30 years of activism in terms of solving problems in the areas of jobs & upward mobility; health care & prescription drug prices; taking guns off the streets; and closing the achievement gap; differentiate me from my competitors.
I am not just espousing a platform; I have engaged local and state institutions and local and state leaders in each category to build consensus, create proof of concepts, and deliver results in the district.
Where’s the accountability? These three words sum up our campaign theme. Check out our accountability video below and endorsements.
I am sure you agree that something is wrong in Washington. But the truth is nothing will change unless we act -- no one else is going to do it for us.
Join our grass-roots and diverse coalition to challenge our government to be more accountable and responsive to the needs of its people, and donate here to help us win on June 26th 2018.
