I am the Green Party candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from upstate New York District 21, #NY21.

On April 11, 2018, our team delivered enough signatures to put me on the Green Party line for the November 8 election.

Great work team! We are making history. We Will Send A Green to Congress!

I have five priorities for District 21:

  1. Expand Health Care, Lower Costs
  2. Grow Green Jobs
  3. Solve Veterans’ Complaints (Transform the VA)
  4. Transform Family Law
  5. Protect and Repair our Environment

I share these Values: Grassroots Democracy; Strong and Healthy Communities; Meaningful Work; Respect for Diversity; Fairness and Equal Justice under the Law; Ecological Wisdom; and Peacebuilding.

Please read more by clicking on the 5 Priorities tab on the top navigation bar. The Get Involved tab lets you Volunteer, Spread the Word or Sign Up, with a special link for Media Requests.  My Blog includes links to published articles presenting strategic plans and roadmaps to serve and grow upstate New York #NY21.

Please join our campaign by clicking on Get Involved then Volunteer. And of course, we appreciate donations of any size. The Green Party accepts no corporate or PAC money, we rely on small donations from regular folks like you.  Thank you.

    5 Demands for 2018 Farm Bill

    I formally released this statement with 5 Demands for the 2018 Farm Bill today at noon, at the Franklin County Fair in Malone, New York. I see the 2018 Farm Bill as a weapon aimed at family farming, especially dairy farms. For decades, the federal government has set the price of milk BELOW the Cost of Production – no business can survive that. Government policy is driving dairy farms into bankruptcy and destroying rural America, along with local control over our food supply.

    Transforming Veterans Affairs: A Plan and a Kick in the Pants

    Based on a speech delivered by Dr. Kahn to Veterans in Politics, International Las Vegas, Nevada 8/27/2015        The U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a whole system is failing miserably and the culture of the Department and all its facilities is miserably dysfunctional. Yes, there are some wonderful, skillful and dedicated professionals in VA medical centers, outpatient clinics, community-based clinics (“storefront vet centers”) and veterans’ nursing homes. Yes, a few VA health facilities provide high-quality care. Yes, the VA has a history of research into the signature injuries of war – most recently prosthetics for amputated limbs and Traumatic Brain Injury. Yes, a new administration has voiced commitment to solving identified problems. However, the VA is a deeply flawed Department and only a true system-wide transformation of how we provide care and benefits to our veterans will bring meaningful change. This article summarizes the VA problems, recommends a powerful transformational approach, and ends with a “kick in the pants” action to jumpstart change.
