My name is Amanda Kondrat'yev, and I support Senator Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America.
I am running for Congress to represent the people of Northwest Florida as your US House Representative for Florida (District 1).
I am 31, a mother of two, and I have lived in Pensacola for 15 years. I was a Navy brat, and I had the privilege of growing up with some of the best resources and systems the government can provide. I was able to travel the world, learn different cultures, and I was taught to believe that the American dream was not only achievable, but an inalienable right.
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case right now, and too many people are suffering here in polluted environments on unlivable wages, spotty healthcare, and oppressive school-to-prison pipelines. There are people who would let people die without healthcare rather than compromise their corporate profits and upset their donors. There are people who would take food from starving children while denying sex education and birth control. They must be stopped. Big money must be taken out of politics, and income inequality must be addressed.
Congress has been doing terrible things, and I simply cannot stand back and accept that even with Bernie Sanders being elected, someone could try to stand in his way. I want to be there to have his back, and I hope you will have mine too.
