Why should voters elect you?
"We deserve great schools, safe streets, good jobs, a clean environment and peace. I will represent the people's interests with integrity nationally and locally."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"Special interest control of our congressional leadership is the problem. The incumbent's behavior both locally and nationally is a direct reflection of the large sums of money received from special interests groups. Visit the Federal Elections Commission Web site,, and see all the donations made to the incumbent by special interests. This has allowed unmanaged residential growth and other quality of life issues to suffer. Our schools are overcrowded, the murder rate is escalating and fire services are strained. Our country is fighting a war for the wrong reasons. We need representation beholden to the people not the special interests."
