As a scientist, a doctor, a parent, and a concerned human being, Justin is passionate that good health and good health care should be available to all. Justin believes that making Medicare4All a reality will only be possible if new people are elected to office with a new agenda. He has not run for political office before, but chose to campaign for office because he feels Americans deserve to have Medicare4All, a policy that enjoys the support of 80% of Democrats and over half of all Americans. He believes that voters in this district have the right to have Medicare for All represented on their ballot on November 3rd. Justin believes if you can’t vote for something, you’ll never get it. Justin also supports Ranked Choice Voting, science-based public health policies, clean energy, peace when possible, and a fair economy.
