General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
I am campaigning for this office because I have the skills, knowledge, intelligence, insight, and ability to lead our County towards our objectives of excellent schools, affordable housing for everybody, and much lower taxes.

We are in the economic crisis of a lifetime. We are adjusting our lives to downsize, conserve, and eliminate wherever possible. Our quality of life is in jeopardy. But even as we try to adjust, we are confronted with a government bureaucracy that is oversized, overpaid, inefficient, and expensive.

As taxpayers we cannot allow our government to continue in the direction it is going. The government and its administration has to change its ways or it will continue eroding our quality of life and our economic security.

The solutions to the problems are not complicated. What is complicated is recognizing the core problem of resisting change and the resistance our current government has to adjusting its expenses to be more in line with what we can afford.

I am the person to resolve the conflict because I, like other small business owners, know how to improvise, adapt, and overcome. It is something I have been doing successfully every day for the last 30 years.

I have identified many opportunities for change that can be implemented immediately without diminishing the level of services our government provides. If elected I am prepared to transform our government into the more open, flexible, and efficient entity that we think it needs to be. It cannot be done from the outside. The internal resistive
forces are too powerful. It has to be done from the inside. It can be done. I can do it.
