Darrell Rodriguez, Candidate for United States Congress - 2018

with a vision of equality for all Americans, no matter who they are, or where they come from.

The Campaign

On Tuesday, November 28th, Rodriguez announced the end of his 8-month campaign for US Congress. He explained that his worldview was drastically expanded by talking to voters, political leaders, and activists, and also by the vast amount of reading, research, and preparation for the job of representing over 700,000 people. “Despite the odds of winning, I devoted a significant amount of time to the real possibility of having the responsibility of making decisions that have a local, national, and global impact,” Rodriguez said. “We live in a 24-hour news cycle, short-term memory bubble, where the daily dialog has been reduced to meaningless reality TV-style social and political entertainment banter, while ignoring the real challenges that Americans face.” Rodriguez explained that looking at the big picture caused him to have a paradigm shift, “I became increasingly aware of the singular most important challenge that humanity will face, that we are facing, our children will face, and all of our descendants will face. Climate change and the effects it will have on humans and every living thing on the planet is that issue. We need to begin taking steps to mitigate the impending disastrous impacts we will face, drastically reduce greenhouse gas levels, and make serious investments in confronting the challenges that lie ahead. My campaign has ended, but I will now embark on being an agent of change, and to advocate for sustainability policies and green energy."

“I am proud that I had the opportunity to run for United States Congress,” Rodriguez said. “It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and I am extremely grateful to everyone who believed in me.” Rodriguez continued to express his thanks, “I’m grateful to all the people who donated, volunteered, signed petitions, to my campaign team, my campaign advisors, my friends, and family, my employer, and all the constituents who promised me their vote, and most of all, to my partner who stood by my side through one of the most exhilarating, yet challenging times in our lives.”
