I believe that this campaign is ultimately about keeping our promises. We must keep our promise to our retired population that Social Security and Medicare will be there for them. We must keep our promise to ourselves and to future generations that we will be good stewards of the environment and pass a clean Chesapeake Bay on to the next generation. We must honor the promise of equal rights for all and freedom for all; there can be no second-class citizens. Lastly, we must keep the promise that there will be access to healthcare and education for everyone- and that we will build a new economy where everyone has the opportunity to succeed and flourish.
