FSS welcomed Tim Canova, a university law professor and activist, who took the political world by storm last year when he announced his candidacy to run for a House seat in Congress!
A progressive Democrat with a passion for supporting and preserving American jobs from moving overseas, reforming a broken financial campaign system, and saving the environment (among other issues), Canova, sought to shake up the status quo of politics. He set his sights high, challenging the incumbent Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also happened to be the Chairperson of the Democratic Party. No easy task, considering his opponent’s status as the DNC Chair, who happened to have more available resources in her campaign chest and the backing of the party’s establishment, including Secretary Clinton, VP Joe Biden and even the POTUS himself!
Canova, a relative newcomer to the political scene, made it his mission to speak out against corporate greed and to fight for the issues he strongly believed in…all without accepting any PAC money. Rather, his campaign accepted only small donations from individuals and raised more than 200,000 individual contributions averaging about $22/donation. This was a recording breaking amount of contributions in congressional campaign history!
“Canova used the New Deal slogan “Progress For All” to contrast his progressive agenda to the trickle down approach of corporate-dominated Democrats and Republicans.” Progress For All is a grassroots organization that focuses on reforming social security, advocates “fair” living wages for American workers, a cleaner environment, affordable education and healthcare among a host of other issues.
