For US Senate in 2022 (winner 2022)
You + I both know I don’t look like a typical politician. Maybe that’s why my tattoos are always the first thing people Google about me. So before I ask you to make a donation to my campaign for U.S. Senate, let me tell you more.
On my left arm I have the zip code 15104. That’s Braddock, PA, my home and the community I was honored to serve as Mayor for 13 years. Gisele and I are raising our kids here in Braddock, right across the street from Andrew Carnegie’s first steel mill.
On my right arm I have nine different dates. These represent the dates of people who were killed through violence in Braddock while I served as mayor, starting in 2006. Seven out of nine were gun deaths.
My first tattoo came after January 16, 2006. It was my second week on the job as mayor after winning my election by a single vote. I received a call and was summoned to a police crime scene where a pizza delivery man had been robbed and killed at gunpoint.
Every time Braddock lost someone was the worst feeling in the world. In a close-knit community like Braddock, it’s very likely that you know the victim and their family. It’s an incredibly wrenching and personal experience as a mayor — but nothing compared to what the families have to go through.
I worked with the community to take on gun violence and other important issues that Braddock faced every day. I helped initiate youth and art programs for the students of our community and we worked together to create a community center.
We also worked to develop buildings that had been written off, kick-started our economy, and reduced deadly violence. My proudest moment as Mayor of Braddock was when our community went 5 ½ years without a gun-related death.
Now I’m running for U.S. Senate, and thehonest truth is that we still need to raise a lot of money to take down my self-funding opponent, Dr. Oz, and his band of celebrity grifters.
I’m told 3 of every 4 donations to our campaign are coming through the internet. So let me ask you, internet user, will you be one of the small-dollar donors that win us this Senate seat?
