I will use my 13+ years of high-tech work and in-depth management experience, strong family values, and solid judgment to tackle issues that many Washingtonians face daily. I am an immigrant who has lived through Soviet socialism and witnessed religious oppression and antisemitism, and I clearly see that our current path is a dangerous one. While socialism makes fake promises of equal outcomes, we must instead ensure equal opportunities. I came here because my parents believed this country to be an ideal place to achieve their dreams and make sure their kids could achieve theirs. A country where laws are followed, bureaucracy is nonexistent, people are safe and prosperous. I came here to live the American dream – a dream that is now unreachable to many Americans.
