National Security

Our government has no more basic responsibility than providing for the safety and security of our citizens.  21st century national security depends on a comprehensive, balanced approach to the full range of challenges including cybersecurity, foreign and domestic terrorism, and engagement with allies to combat destabilization abroad. Seth believes the bar should always be high for deploying American service members overseas, and our men and women in uniform must have the tools and support they need to do their jobs as safely and effectively as possible. 

Seth supports continued humanitarian and military aid to the people of Ukraine as they fight back against Vladimir Putin’s immoral and illegal invasion of their country.  

Putin’s invasion has demonstrated that our international alliances are as important as ever.  American security depends on a strong Europe and a strong NATO who will stand up for democracy and against authoritarianism.


We owe the freedoms we enjoy as Americans to the great sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.  They deserve much more than our thanks and appreciation – they deserve high-quality health care including mental health care, affordable education and job training, and employment opportunities as they transition from military service to civilian life.

As Treasurer, Seth created the BANKLocal program which encourages local banks and credit unions to make loans to Veteran owned businesses.    In Congress, he will stand up for veteran’s healthcare as well as tax credits for businesses that hire veterans and expanded education and job training programs.
