Max enrolled at UC Berkeley after completing his deployments and graduated in 2011. He immediately returned to serving his country as a soldier and a diplomat.
He reenlisted in the Army Reserves and is now a Sergeant First Class and lead NCO of a Civil Affairs Team. He entered our country’s Foreign Service and served as a diplomat in Honduras, Mexico, and Washington, DC. His last overseas tour was in the Sinai Peninsula, where he served as an observer with the multi-national force charged with enforcing the 1982 Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty. He then left the Foreign Service to work toward a PhD in Policy Analysis at RAND.
Max knows how fragile democracy is. Doug does not.
Doug has never served in our country’s armed forces. He has never lived or worked in corrupt countries with dictatorial regimes that enrich themselves while denying citizens the ability to vote them out of power. His sheltered life as heir to the family rice farm and 20-year career as a do-nothing politician have left him without an ounce of patriotism and with nothing but contempt for the hard-working voters of this district.
