IamA progressive congressional candidate running for congress in a conservative state AMA!
My short bio: My name is Dimitri Cherny. After training as an engineer, I had a long career in the high-tech industry up until the great recession. By the end of 2010 I lost everything, and couldn't get a job doing ANYTHING, and was homeless for a few months before retraining as a long-haul truck driver. While driving the highways of America I studied economics and history and realized that our economy HAS been rigged to favor the already successful and leave the rest of us struggling. I also learned that legislation that helps the average American only comes about during big social upheavals - like now. So I'm running for Congress to help make the changes necessary to make life better for the average hardworking American, and to keep our planet from becoming an uninhabitable nightmare for our great grandchildren.
