"I grew up in a family where politics were a part of the everyday discourse. When I got old enough to actively participate in politics, the Democratic Party welcomed me and I decided to stay involved. It is especially gratifying to see high school and college kids coming into the party today. I believe that they, and the Democratic Party, are going to be the salvation of our nation, society and environment."You can also read more about John's work in politics here and here.
