Politics Aside

“If you want good government,
you gotta vote for it.”

                             – Tommy Wells

As the movement to change DC is growing, we have remarkable people coming together from all walks of life. 

Non-Democrats are changing political parties so they can participate in the April 1 Democratic Primary.  Led by Richard Lucas, John Plishka, Cathy Travis and Ryan E. Wynkoop, a group “Politics Aside” has been formed with the goal of attracting voters who are unified by one thing: the desire to change DC’s ingrained culture of corruption. 

They are asking people to change party affiliation for just 30 days in a movement to clean up the DC government and remove money’s corrosive influence on politics. 

Tommy is the change, but the people are the way to do it!
