Joan is running as an Independent since Republicans favor the 1% who are wealthy, Democrats favor the 13% who are liberal, and the 86 - 99% who are Christians/poor/middle class are not truly represented in Congress. As a business consultant, her average earned income for the past three years was $33,000. She has always paid her taxes, on time, and even her parking tickets. Joan is fiscally responsible and helped her family get out of $310,000 debt within 14 months back in 2005. With almost no debt since then, she has been helping homeless and disabled young people for three years to get a start in life. Joan used her own money from an IRA to begin her campaign, but it is running out. So please donate today!
