I am an independent and Green Party candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from New York District 21. On April 11, 2018 we delivered enough signatures for me to be the Green Party Congressional candidate in the November 8 election. Great work team! We are making history - Send A Green to Congress!

I have five priorities for District 21:

  1. Expand Health Care
  2. Grow Green Jobs
  3. Solve Veterans’ Complaints
  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 about my priorities by clicking on the 5 Priorities tab on the top navigation bar. Let me know what you think by providing Feedback under the Contact Us tab. My blog includes links to many published articles about the key issues facing America and New York today. Read them and understand why they call me "The Government Mechanic."

Please join our campaign and let us know how you want to help.

    Why is Lady Justice Crying?

    My 2017 article on The 95% Failure Rate of Foster Care in America began: “The broken-hearted stood up to give witness in Clinton, Iowa on October 8, 2016.” This is where and when my education in family law began. At a Family Reunification Town Hall Meeting, parents and grandparents described the abuses and trauma inflicted by state agencies and courts that take children from loving families and make obscenely wrong-headed decisions about child custody. How could this be?  Follow the money!

    Building Peace in Times of Terror

    We the People are wiser than warfare. We must act on that wisdom as our nation and our shared planet confront the possibility of eternal warfare. Our choice instead is to embark on an Age of Peacebuilding – an era that balances the realities of terrorism with the knowledge of diplomacy and the promise of people-to-people conflict resolution. And here’s the key to success: we must build peace here at home at the same time we confront terrorism and build peace around the world.

    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.

    Justice Reform in America: An Action Plan

    America has a problem with violence – we create too much of it here at home and export too much of it around the world. As an independent candidate for President of the United States, my solutions for reducing and preventing violence are the heart of my campaign platform - Fix Government, Build Peace.  My action plan is a comprehensive approach to reduce and prevent violence; transform law enforcement into a community policing model that uses best practices to build stronger communities; repair the damage done by our broken justice systems; and rebuild trust in justice and law enforcement in America so together we can improve public safety.
