I'm Justin Santopietro, a candidate for the Democratic nomination in Virginia's 9th Congressional District.
As divided as Americans may be, we all agree on one thing- our country is headed deeply in the wrong direction, and the current political system has failed us.
While our nation’s freedom and prosperity slips away, our government has become hopelessly paralyzed by partisan gridlock. It's now painfully obvious that too many of our current representatives are out of courage, out of touch, and out of ideas.
Our country needs a new generation of smart, tough leaders who have fresh ideas about how to fix things. I have the experience, the ideas, and the tenacity to fight for Southwest Virginia in Congress-and make the powerful listen. America's promise is still as true as it ever was-but we must fight to preserve it.
Enough with the pandering politicians and their partisan games. We need someone who will listen to and fight for the needs of working Virginians, not just the demands of big donors and special interests.
As a born and bred Southwest Virginian, Justin was raised on the values of integrity, morality, and independence.
Seasoned by his work in a congressional office, the federal consumer financial protection agency, and the private sector, Justin is more than ready to be your champion in Washington.
Justin maintained his Virginia values, while gaining experience and tenacity from years of work inside DC. Now he wants to use these skills to fight side-by-side with you.
