Sean Dougherty for Congress
Do you live in CA's Congressional District 19, that includes most of Santa Cruz County & parts of Santa Clara, Monterey and San Luis Obispo Counties? If so, check out Sean Dougherty @SeanForPeacea, a Green running to challenge a war machine supporter!
~ Green Party of Santa Clara County
I've been working as an engineer since the late 90's. I help create consumer products, like smartphones and laptops. My wife and I have lived in Santa Cruz for nearly a decade and have a toddler, who is objectively the smartest and bestest person to have ever walked the earth. I want my kid to have a habitable planet when he's grown.
I became politically active during the Iraq War and the Occupy movement. After the 2016 election, I became involved with political campaigns, including joining the advisory group of Santa Cruz for Bernie and providing free tech and data services to a variety of local campaigns, including city council, Democratic Central Committee (DCC), and district supervisor races. I am now a co-chair of the Membership and Outreach Committee of the California Green Party.
I'm not running with a major party. I was a Democrat until a few years ago, but I came to the conclusion that real change, particularly at the Federal level, isn't possible within the two major parties. These parties are owned by the very corporations and billionaires that are making money from the destruction of ecosystems, perpetuation of wars, and exploitation of people. If we're going to bring sanity to our nation, we're going to have to do so outside of those parties.
We can end the wars and take aggressive climate action. We can provide our people homes, healthcare, and education. But to do so, we must reject corporate control. With your support, I believe we've got a shot at taking on the incumbent. Please join me in fighting for a real democracy controlled by the people and for the people, not the corporations.
