The Democratic Freedom Caucus (DFC) National CommitteeÂ has endorsed Alanna Hartzok for Congress, 9th district,Â Pennsylvania.
Hartzok’s campaign platform is compatible with the DFC’s -Â especially her stands onÂ economic issues, where her views are for an alternativeÂ to the usual left and right.
She recognizes that, for a healthy economy, with job creation and alleviation of poverty, it’s essential toÂ uphold the basic principles that labor and productionÂ should not be penalized, and that natural resources are a unique kind of property that needs to be treatedÂ differently from other property, because otherwise itÂ skews the entire economy. She is also for cuttingÂ corporate welfare.
According to an interview in the Daily American newspaperÂ in Pennsylvania, Hartzok was asked by the Franklin CountyÂ Democratic chairman if she would run for the DemocraticÂ nomination. She says there are ways to take ideas fromÂ both the right and the left, which could make ourÂ Â democracy work better.
Hartzok points out that an important aspect of theÂ stateâ€™s wealth is its gifts from nature, and that weÂ have to fairly share those gifts. Environmental rulesÂ and regulatory rules need to be enforced.
She is in favor of a policy similar to the AlaskaÂ Permanent Fund, in which revenue related to the oilÂ industry is invested and some of the revenue is paid asÂ a dividend to the stateâ€™s residents.
In the Democratic primary, Hartzok wasÂ Â unopposed, and won the primary.
