Political elites on both sides need to go

OPINION by JUSTIN FAREED
This election, both nationally and locally, has highlighted a stark divide in our country between those who are deeply entrenched in the political establishment and those with a vision who are working to bring true representation back to the people of our nation.
What this year’s Democratic National Convention has made clear is that the system is rigged in favor of those of whom are entrenched in the insider system, the political elite who offer nothing more than failed policies and recycled ideas. The “democratic” establishment and the career politicians within our own community continuously back other political insiders, like Hillary Clinton and my opponent Salud Carbajal, who place their own self-interests and the establishment above the people.
It is necessary that our community and nation stand with the visionaries and the candidates who are willing to work twice has hard to implement new and long-range policies that will strengthen our future. This is no longer simply a battle between Republicans and Democrats, but a battle between those who do everything to perpetuate a rigged system and those who do everything to ensure that the voices of this nation are heard.
The people of our country have shown that they are tired of the corruption and are ready to reform the institutions our democracy depends upon. Now, we must work to see this through. As your representative, I will help lead this fight to bring true representation back to the people and to get Washington working for the future of our nation.
