– From U.S. Congressional candidate Tamborine Borrelli (WA-CD10) to Blog readers:
My name is Tamborine Borrelli and I’m running for Congress in the 10th Congressional District. Not because I always dreamed of being in politics, but because we are living in a pregnant time that will either give birth to a new era of justice, true democracy and abundance, or if we do nothing, we will inevitably experience more of the same, perhaps even worse. We need to replace a system that puts profit and corporate interests above the interests of the people and the planet.
I currently serve on the board of Election Justice USA which is focused on developing a solution to our broken election system. My commitment to fair elections and government reform has led me to open a chapter of Represent US, the organization for the American Anti-Corruption Act. This will once again make it illegal for lobbyists to bribe politicians.
I’m running a people powered, grassroots campaign that does not accept corporate Super PAC money and moreover, I have signed the CFAR contract (Contract For American Renewal) which states that if I do not follow through with supporting and/or sponsoring legislation that I have campaigned on within the first 180 days in office, I will resign the very next day. This should be the bar that all candidates and incumbents live up to.
Within this pregnant time, there is a seed of a new direction that is waiting for US to choose it. I am going to give everything the I AM to help bring that into fruition. I invite you to read my full platform at www.tamborine2018.com and join our email list to stay up to date on our campaign. We are also looking for individual donations of any amount as well as volunteers to help bring this vision to life.
