Representative in Congress District 5
Doug is an exciting progressive candidate to take on the big money establishment.
He is pro-choice, for universal healthcare, supports the Veterans for Peace and is against the Iraq War, passionate about racial justice, pro-LGBT rights, an environmentalist, eager to correct the erosion of our civil liberties and civil rights, pro-union, and he supports the Barack Obama campaign. We can't change Washington if we don't change the players!
