The Frame Campaign for Congress is founded on a quintessentially American ideal: representation. In our democratic republic, Members of Congress are sworn to govern in a way that is, in President Lincoln’s words, “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
This core principle is a cornerstone of this campaign and Sean has adopted this high and necessary standard as the process by which he will develop his platform.
Of the People
To be “of the people,” you have to live with the people.
Sean understands California’s Fourth District because he lives in California’s Fourth. He serves his community as Vice President of the Placerville Union School board, he contributes to the local economy as a small business owner, and he has raised his family in Placerville. Each of these experiences informs his candidacy and roots his priorities firmly in the communities that make up the district.
Sean will fight for the Fourth like it is his home. Because it is his home.
By the People
To be “by the people,” Sean is developing his platform in the following ways:
- A District-Wide Listening Tour – Sean has traveled across California’s Fourth to hear the challenges, ideas, and solutions that constituents have across the district.
- The Team Frame Platform Committee – Sean has built a team of local policy experts and key stakeholders from the labor, business, and non-profit communities to develop his platform.
- In-District Solution Summits – Sean will host a series of Solution Summits to bring together the district and address our urgent problems.
Each of these initiatives will help Team Frame develop a representative platform that serves the residents of California’s Fourth District, including those in rural communities that are often ignored in Congress.
For the People
To be “for the people,” Sean is running as a true grassroots candidate. He has refused corporate PAC money and staffed Team Frame primarily with local talent to ensure that his constituents are his exclusive priority. Always.
Sean has also committed to accessibility, transparency, and service. This will include a minimum of four town halls per year and effective constituent services that help residents navigate the federal government. After enduring a decade of Tom McClintock, the people of the Fourth deserve a Representative who puts them first.
Sean will be releasing the following platform planks in the coming weeks:
- Senior Issues
- Jobs & the Economy
- Veteran’s Affairs
- Affordable Housing & Homelessness
