Brian Allen is running for Congress to represent the people of Pennsylvania's 10th district. He is not a career politician, but an engaged and respected member of the community and has spent his entire career working to improve the lives of those who experienced adversity and hardship. As a lifelong Republican, he is dismayed at what the party has become. Our conservative values are mocked, prominent Republicans publicly disparage women and minorities, and party leaders refuse to answer difficult questions by complaining about fairness and "fake news." Republicans and Democrats alike have created a political atmosphere marked by partisan bickering and hypocrisy. In short, Washington is broken and people no longer trust their elected officials. It is time for a new way forward.
