Mark will fight for:

➔ Healthcare +

"I will work for accessible, affordable, and excellent healthcare for every American. I support efforts to invest in preventative care to reduce the epidemic of untreated chronic diseases that lead to expensive medical interventions down the line, costing us all. We have to prevent health problems before they snowball into other issues that affect the individual as well as our communities. This is particularly true for mental health and addiction..."

➔ Gun Violence Prevention +

"It is long past time us to take common sense steps to prevent gun violence. If elected, I will fight for solutions that protect our children and families, including accountable and responsible gun ownership measures, universal background checks and registration for both firearms and people who sell them."

➔ VA Workers & Economy +

"Offering incentives for young adults to pursue high demand jobs and the jobs of the future are an important part of preparing for the changing nature of work. I will push for tax policies that reward people for hard work, support small business, support our aquaculture, cybersecurity and clean energy sectors and keep our district moving forward. ..."

➔ Environment/Energy +

"We must champion policies to create new, sustainable, clean energy jobs and grow our economy. As scientist, I will apply evidence-based principles and methods to my evaluation of environmental policy and regulation and insist that our government agencies do the same."
