Andrea's Forward Story:

I am running because the change we need requires national policy, and my experience at all levels makes me uniquely qualified to work in the federal legislature. I hope to support the passage of laws and policies that support local working people and families in their normal day to day lives, by bringing the investment Southern Maryland needs in our people, infrastructure, education and environment to improve our lives and those of our kids and grandkids.

I am excited to be endorsed by Forward because I truly believe they are aligned with my views and worldview. The Forward Party is innovative and willing to break away from the status quo, which clearly has not served us well in the past.
