A well known leader in education, Pope is a strong advocate for equity and access. Over the years he has mentored countless students. At the encouragement of his family and friends he is throwing his hat into the political arena. Government is no longer working for the people, but for the politically elite, the billionaires, and the corporate lobbyists. It's time to take our government back and practice common sense policies. We need to get the looming deficit under control. Families have to balance their budgets and so should government. Pope is a fiscal conservative who is moderate to progressive in his social views. All citizens need to feel safe, know they have a voice, and have a seat at the table. Diversity is our strength. Diversity has made American great. Also pizza is great. Join the Pizza Party and let's get this Party started! Vote for Pope 2020!!
