A Message From the Candidate
We seek a middle path. A middle path is a path of inclusion that draws together a diversity of positions and perspectives to formulate the strongest sense of our community and the most truthful representation of our society.
I am a trained attorney and aspiring statesman. My knowledge in activating the law to have it work for an individual and society's benefit is an empowering tool, not merely for myself but for those I serve. I will serve District 48 with an ambition for unifying our disparate selves, aiding the advancement of legislation that incorporates minority perspectives, aiding the dissolve of legislation that represents the excesses of power, and seeking efficient resolve to the crises of partisanship. I believe these are the ingredients for progress.
Our current state of affairs is in need of better oversight. When one faction becomes too powerful, there is an inherent desire to over-produce. Proposed projects become so large and numerous that they can no longer respond in a timely nor efficient manner to the shifting needs of our society and state. They implode and we are left with disappointment and lawsuits, and a forgotten sense of the basic functions of governance.
We are in the midst of manufacturing our state. And our design for its future must be supported by balanced goals, initiatives, and budgets. If we leave one group behind, we lose a part of the truth that makes up our community. And where there is a lack of truth, there is a lie – a weakness in the structure of our state.
We are in a race to become the best people, in the best state, in the best nation, to make the world the best place to live. We do so by serving each other, by strengthening our connections to one another, and by promoting peace wherever there is conflict.
