Gerstner

Web Developer & Designer

After graduating the University of Tulsa with a degree in Computer Science in 2021, I joined Civil to work on the web team. I'm a board game aficionado, graphic designer, and a nut for animated horror films. I believe that providing a platform for balanced discussion is invaluable in today's political climate. Being able to see the facts and understand the other side is how we can talk with loved ones and friends with different opinions than our own. I lean left politically because I believe it's the duty of a democratic government to help provide freedoms and basic necessities for its people.

Most Important Issues

Criminal Justice Reform – Far too many people are incarcerated for victimless crimes such as being unable to pay for traffic tickets and drug use, while CEOs who commit mass fraud or large scale pollution walk with only a fine.

Health Care – A well-established government should aim to help its people, and health care is something that every person needs. I believe that with a carefully developed national infrastructure, we could serve more people for less, while cutting out the for-profit insurance industry.

Climate Change & Environmental Law – Companies have gotten off far too long polluting our planet while not contributing enough to help it.
