Partisanship in the time of Covid-19

Politics cannot be a zero sum game. It cannot be “we just need more of us and less of them to win.” We need to establish a common framework and a common dialogue because what we have in common is humanity.

I think this virus, and the recognition that it is global, gets us really tuned in to the fact that we are all deeply interconnected, that this tribalism that is foist upon us — by certain politicians and by certain special interest groups, whose power is continued by this deep divisiveness in this country — doesn’t serve us.

In this post I have included a great study by Katherine M. Gehl and Michael E. Porter at the Harvard Business School that addresses the top 4 or 5 reforms we need to reduce this acrimony, reduce this hyper-partisanship, and reduce this hyper-polarization.

I ask you to support my campaign for Sandoval County Clerk where I will have the opportunity to help shape the policies and dialogue that will lead to a more productive and a more equitable election process.

Make sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date with the campaign. As always, we would love to have you volunteer with our campaign!
