Can you agree to conducting yourself in respectful and civil manner as you engage in thoughtful dialogue across political divides in search of win-win solutions to the issues we all care about?


What does transpartisan mean to you?

It means being more committed to solving problems and finding common ground than to ideological purity.

What most closely identifies your political point of view?

I'm pretty liberal, both socially and economically. I'd like to see the government pay less attention to people's personal lives and pay more attention to the economy. I'm in favor of equal rights for all people. I support policies that would increase income mobility and reduce the gap between rich and poor. I believe that we ignore the environment at our peril. Aside from specific issues, I believe that the problems with our government are the result more of systemic flaws than malice or stupidity on the part of people I disagree with. Without systemic change, politicians will continue to serve the needs of the few rather than the needs of the many. My views on this have been shaped by Larry Lessig and Philip Zimbardo.

What is your primary website, social network or blog?


I've participated in politics both as a volunteer and as a professional, and have gotten a first-hand look at how we are not well-served by our political institutions.
