Contribute Now to Young Professionals for a Change

by Ryan Tuggle, Stephanie Casey and others


Fifteen congressional seats separate the missteps of the last six years from a needed correction. Voters in fifteen districts get to decide whether our government continues to operate without checks on its authority or if a meaningful opposition can establish boundaries. Our nation's principles have suffered in the absence of opposition. Extraordinary rendition and indefinite detention have overrun principles of justice. Domestic spying has ignored principles of limited executive power. Record deficits have mortgaged principles of prudence. If an opposition party, the Democratic Party, is able to gain fifteen congressional seats this November it will have the power to demand accountability.

Young Professionals for a Change is a group of friends that believe the desire for change, for opposition, exists in all parts of the country. What is needed to realize that change is strong, locally rooted, Democratic candidates. Pollsters believe that only a few dozen districts warrant attention in 2006. Young Professionals for a Change believes that every strong Democratic candidate could deliver one of the fifteen seats we need.

Young Professionals for a Change contribute to principled Democratic candidates from Republican districts where we live or work. We ask our friends around the country to help our local communities become vehicles for national change. This year, we're raising our voice for a change.

As a group of Georgetown graduates and supporters, we know Dean Judy Feder personally and have worked closely with her. Judy is the kind of principled leader America needs. Virginia's tenth District is Judy's home of 20 years, and it is ready for change. Tenth district communities adjacent to the Washington D.C. beltway have added population in recent years. Republican returns in the district have fallen. After years of Republican majorities, Democratic governor Tim Kaine carried the district in Virginia's 2005 gubernatorial race. Most important, Judy is reaching voters far outside the beltway, explaining how her governing expertise, her turn as chief health policy analyst as U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Clinton, will help her change the direction of policies that matter to voters. Judy will deliver health care, homeland security, and fiscal responsibility. Judy Feder deserves our support for a change.
