In endorsing Roger, Our Revolution President Nina Turner stated: “Roger is a proven advocate for the working class. He has fought and won reforms that guarantee workers rights to breaks, prevent insurance companies from denying health care, and helped to draft the Affordable Care Act. In Congress, Roger will continue to push for much-needed reforms like Medicare for All, expanding education funding, and preserving our country’s natural resources.”
From picket lines, to the White House, to floor of the State Senate, Roger has dedicated his career to fighting for working people. He has successfully taken on insurance companies who denied care, big polluters, and union-busting bosses. He stood up against outrageous tolls, stopped cuts to senior’s programs, women’s health, and workforce training. He fought to make our tax code fairer for hard-working families, seniors, and first responders.
He is the only candidate in the 6th Congressional District race to oppose the $1.1 BILLION tax cut for the richest 0.2%, to oppose the $8.5 BILLION tax package for the single wealthiest person in the world, and to oppose giving out-of-state garbage burning polluters “clean energy” tax credits in Maryland. And while other candidates were crossing picket lines, denying maternity leave to their employees, or criminalizing homeless veterans and poor people for panhandling, Roger has been standing for the REAL PROGRESSIVE values of working people and an economy that works for all Americans, not just the wealthy and powerful elites.
“I could not be prouder to receive the endorsement of Our Revolution, and the great Senator Nina Turner,” stated Roger. “Americans deserve a level playing field and an economy that is built for everyone. From tuition-free college, to universal Medicare for everyone, to a public K-12 and trades training system that works for the 21st century, I am proud of the work that Our Revolution and I continue to do to transform our nation for the good.”
Our Revolution emerged from Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential election as the largest and most diverse progressive advocacy organization in America. Our Revolution’s mission is to reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the “political revolution.” Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution seeks to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.
