It's high time the government 'of the people, by the people, for the people' has an elected official that listens, understands, and has the best interests of its people in mind. Now, more than ever, there is a greater need to create compassionate, efficient and effective policy and legislation.



I spent my career in business, not in politics.  As a former bank trading executive, venture capitalist, strategy consultant, and adjunct professor in finance and economics at NYU, my extensive knowledge and leadership experience make me a uniquely qualified Congressional candidate.

We need an intelligent, insightful, practical approach to solve our problems. I have the proven ability to deliver from my business experience in analyzing complex issues, seeing opportunities, setting out objectives, getting all sides to agree, and successfully executing the plans. I know when to compromise, when to stand firm, and how to get results.

As a social progressive, I intend to find solutions for the difficult issues facing all Americans and would work to promote better opportunities for all. Now, more than ever, there is a greater need to create compassionate, efficient and effective policy and legislation to get the job done.

I am an advocate for a living wage, income equity, social justice, strong unions, human and LGBT rights, health and pro-choice, and an end to Citizens United.

America was founded on the principles of freedom, opportunity, and accountability and responsibility.

I promise to put these principles in practice to create a stronger future for our children and our Nation.

I am Lorna Phillipson and I believe in the promise of the American Dream.

I chose to run because I share your concerns about the future of our country.

Congress has mishandled our economy, misused our taxes, bungled veteran’s affairs, cut aid for seniors, the disabled, and children. They seem intent on regressing socially back to the 1950s, instead of progressing forward into the 21st century.

We are tired of the wasteful divisiveness and costly shutdowns which have crippled the ability of Congress to meet the needs of the people.

Thirty years after Reagan, it is obvious that trickle-down economics does not work. Fourteen years of war have cost us dearly, in men and dollars. Congress has failed to deliver success and prosperity for all Americans.
