Tallahassee, FL - U.S. Congress candidate, Gwen Graham, is calling for reform.

Thursday morning, Graham signed a pledge at Lake Ella in Tallahassee.
The pledge calls for an "end" to members of Congress receiving pay while missing votes for no reason, ending wasteful spending on first class flights and the congressional gym, and rejects tax-payer funded subsidies for health-care that are not available to the public.

Graham says, "I'm going to make sure that every single dollar that is spent is spent in the best service of the people in this district, in Florida, and our country. That's my number one priority; and to bring economic development and job growth to this district. I'm going to be fighting hard for that every single day."

Graham is running against Congressman Steve Southerland.
