Planning for the Future of Maryland’s 7th Congressional District
“We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims. [The challenge is] to make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time, with spontaneous cooperation and without ecological damage or disadvantage of anyone.” –R. Buckminster Fuller
Candidates often share a long list of issues they plan to tackle while in Congress. However, in a two-year session, that is unrealistic and highly unlikely, especially with the partisan politics in Washington. Amber plans to introduce and support bipartisan legislation that deals with how the economy will change the future of families, work, and communities.
If elected, Amber will work to introduce and support comprehensive legislation that ensures:
- Our families have access to healthcare, childcare, and benefits that exist outside of a traditional job.
- Our workforce (businesses, employees, and students) has access to the training and education necessary to compete in an economy where up to 38 percent of current full-time positions will not exist in ten years due to automation. Also, legislation that ensures data and technology do not negatively impact security and civil liberties.
- Our communities have funding for both physical (such as transit, roads, and bridges) and technological (such as high-speed internet, digital tools, and smart grids) infrastructure to remain connected and competitive.
The citizens of Maryland’s 7th Congressional District may live in the same voting block, but they face very different issues. Let’s focus on our common ground and work together to improve the Future of Families, the Future of Work, and the Future of Connected Communities. Sign the petition to get Amber on the November ballot.
