Rick Kennedy's Profile

Let's fix our broken electoral systems.

Hi all! My name is Rick Kennedy. I'm a two time Democratic Party nominee for US Congress in TX-17 - and I'm now a state lead for the Forward Party of Texas. 

Congress' job approval hovers around 20%. Yet every two years we send well over 90% of the same people back to DC. Sound broken? It is.  

Precision gerrymandering and partisan primaries have resulted in trench warfare between the two major parties, with a slim majority flipping every few years as the few competitive seats change hands. At the state level, it has resulted in single-party rule in many states.

I've joined the Forward Party because one of its primary goals is to reform this broken system, re-empower millions of American voters, and restore accountability to our elected officials. And since I believe the status-quo is an existential threat to the Republic, it's a goal I'm deeply committed to. Click the button below and help us fix our broken democracy.
