Sanders Brings a Scientific Perspective to His Politics

On Friday the Purdue Exponent published a profile of Democrat David Sanders who is running for a seat on the West Lafayette City Council. The article focuses on the scientific perspective perspective that Sanders applies to political matters, especially where data are concerned:
“I've been interested for quite some time in the intersection of science and public policy. That’s why I’m interested in politics, because very few people in decision-making positions have scientific experience. On either side of the spectrum, either the left or the right, they listen to lobbyists who tell them what to do, rather than evaluating the data for themselves.”
