As you can see from my business, civic and governmental experience in Monmouth, Independence and Polk County I have the ability to do the job. As your representative I will make sure to take you to Washington with me, as too often we have had our representatives take their party with them. I will make a commitment to make sure that it is your voice, through me, not mine for you, that gets heard.
Many of you are calling for an end to the wars and empire building, an end to corporate welfare, you want tax reform, social justice, and human dignity. We have had politicians tell us they would work for these ends and yet nothing changes. As the citizens of Monmouth know, I work hard and study the issues to get things done.
