Moving our Economy Forward

Dear Friends,

In difficult economic times, we need leaders who know how to create smart economic solutions and who understand the tough road ahead for American families from first-hand experience.

My name is Anthony Woods, and that’s why I am running for Congress.
Join our campaign for a stronger economy.

A Leader, not a Career Sacramento Politician

Unlike three other candidates in the September 1 Special Election for Congress, I am not another career Sacramento politician. I am an Iraq War Veteran and an economic policy specialist, trained at West Point and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.  I have worked in both the public and private sector to help create jobs. And I am fighting for you, not for the big-money special interests that are fighting against real reform in Washington D.C. You can learn more about me on my website.

Times are hard and I know what it's like to be uncertain about the future. I was born and raised right here in our community by a single mother who ran a small housekeeping business. We couldn’t afford health insurance or the cost of a college education. Through service and hard work, I earned an appointment to West Point and went on to serve two tours of duty in Iraq as a platoon leader. Watch a short video about my service abroad.

Plans to Rebuild our Economy

As an economic policy specialist, I know that rebuilding our economy and creating jobs means viewing our challenges as opportunities. That’s why I’ll fight to invest in our infrastructure and research laboratories so we can lead America’s clean energy transformation right here in District 10. It’s also why I support universal health care – because more access and more choice means less health care costs for families and more money for small businesses to invest in creating jobs.  And it’s why I’ve proposed a national Service to College plan that will help more young people access the skills they need to compete in the global economy.

From my time in the military, to helping rebuild hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, to mentoring at-risk youth, I believe in hard work, real accountability and service to community. That’s why today I've returned home to stand up and fight for the policy solutions we deserve. You can learn about my plans and my stances on the most important issues on my website.

Had Enough of "Politics as Usual?"

If you’re like me, you’ve had enough of the failed politics of Sacramento and Washington D.C. – enough of career politicians, runaway deficits and half-solutions that kill jobs, undermine our schools and leave even bigger problems for the next generation. It's time to elect citizen-leaders who understand our communities, our concerns and how to lead us through a full economic recovery.

On September 1, you can take a stand for real change and battle-tested leadership that understands what it’s like to walk in your shoes. 

Please join our campaign, and together we will get this economy, and our country back on track.
