Even though Schomburg grew up admiring both his grandfathers, he hasn't pursued politics until now. After he decided he wanted to pursue a profession, he entered nursing school and is now taking classes to help him prepare to become a nursing administrator.
Schomburg suggested that if the government wants to spend stimulus dollars, it should hire more teachers.
He is wary of the package of health care reform enacted this year, because it doesn't fairly account for costs health care providers incur.
The most dramatic change he advocates is the “Fair Tax,” a national sales tax that would replace income taxes and other federal taxes.
Education: Bachelor's in nursing from New York University; currently pursuing a master's in nursing administration from Duke University via online classes
Political experience: This is Schomburg's first race
