The main reason I am running for the legislature in 2018, is to bring to the people, a principled approach to government. It is important for me and all others in state government, to look at the State Constitution, which is the foundation document for governance, along with the current code, which is supposed to enforce the foundation document, and then legislate based on principle and fact, not emotion or favoritism. Only this kind of governing can insure that the individual’s rights are protected from encroachment by faction, fad, greed, or misguided good will. Another and maybe just as important reason is to give people more choice. The two major parties do not have a monopoly on good candidates.
