Running as a Write-In candidate for U.S. Congress because I believe our country is on the wrong path. We have a 17 trillion dollar deficit, regulations that prevent growth and kill jobs, a complex tax code, an unemployment rate that is unacceptable, an energy crisis, out of control government spending, imbalanced trade agreements and elected representatives who believe they can trample upon our Constitution and our religious freedom (just to name a few). It is time for a Citizen Legislator who puts people over party politics. This is a great opportunity for the state of Connecticut to elect a Citizen Representative who will fight for the American people instead of a career politician who will fight, only for their party. I believe in common-sense policies, not party politics. What we have in Congress is nothing more than grid lock. I’m ready to fight for you, challenge the existing barriers and create a path to job creation, energy independence, tax reform, fair trade agreements, and a free market health care system that allows for out of state competition. My highest priority is your best interest. Give me that opportunity and the opportunity to protect and defend our Constitution and religious freedom.
