Summer Spring for Maryland's 8th Congressional District
Last year, she became the proud mother of two beautiful girls and that’s when she had a watershed moment and felt that she had to run for Congress.
“Having had two little girls, I suddenly appreciate more than ever, how babies feel. I need to make sure that unborn babies who can feel pain are protected! My opponent and incumbent Jamie Raskin voted against a bill that would protect Pain-Capable Unborn Children in the Pain-Capable Unborn Children Protection Act (HR 36) (https://ballotpedia.org/Jamie_Raskin#cite_note-3 ) . This is horrendous and I can’t imagine that most district 8 residents feel that this is okay. Raskin was not representing our interests when he voted against that bill. Although I’m running as a centrist Democrat, my goal is to represent the people of district 8 completely – both republicans and democrats. We are a diverse group of people. Many of us are religious. Many of us are minorities. We are women and men who care about protecting the defenseless and pain-capable and who can’t stomach the idea of causing pain to a child. We are environmentally conscious. We care about quality subsidized childcare for our young, good education for our youths, job opportunities for our workforce, and affordable healthcare for all of us.”
Regarding her race, which is indeterminable at first glance, she says:
“I grew up identifying as African American, but race should never define a person. Now I often checked the Other box. I’m Jewish Italian, Jamaican, and American Indian on my mom’s side and Asian Indian from New Delhi on my dad’s.”
