Facts, integrity, and truth

When a scientist runs for office, the facts are front and center in her campaign:

“At the heart of every scientist is a commitment to facts, integrity, and truth. ” –Elaine DiMasi (NY-1 candidate, 2018)

And that is exactly what I want to see more of in politics: More facts. More integrity. More truth.

Increasing the number, visibility, and vibrancy of STEM candidates and elected officials is one way to help do that.
