Mike for Congress

Mike for Congress

By Michael Ruiz
This podcast documents the journey and motivation behind my run for Congress leading up to the 2022 midterm elections. I'll discuss my motivation to run for federal office and the challenges that a 'normal' person faces when seeking office. I will discuss my policy positions on certain issues and discuss what I would do differently. My hope is that this podcast will reach voters in the district I am seeking to represent so that we can discuss the problems that we face in our community and the path forward. It's currently 2020 and if you're not outraged then you're not paying attention.
