I have recently arranged to reach out to a large group of voters by email asking for your support with my Candidate Petition, a message you may have already received. Although the petition can be printed on your computer, completed and mailed to me, some of you may never have met me, and might like to. I would like to meet you also, and help you with the petition if you prefer that.

This is the last month. If you have been considering filling out my petition now is the time to do it! If you have one filled out already, send it in NOW. Thanks very much.

In order to be on the ballot for County Commissioner you either have to be rich enough to buy your way in, about $5000, or you have to be able to gather 2774 signed petitions. May as well be 3000 considering that some will be rejected for one reason or another.

If I do not get enough valid petitions there will be only one name on the ballot for the seat I am running for. I don't think anyone thinks that is a good idea. Even the other candidate filled out my petition. He knows that an unopposed win is forever suspect.

I am not rich at all let alone rich enough to buy my way in. Please help me with your petition, and the petitions of any other people that you might know who support my being on the ballot, the more the merrier. Click on the image below to get a printable version, and (if you are on my Home page) click on the "Read more" link to see a set of instructions.

I don't usually talk about myself. It is not about me, it is about you - especially about how you are taxed enough already. But tonight Joe Gruters gave all the candidates enough time to go into a little depth so I departed from my usual habit.

(This is an older article, but the message is relevant to the current campaign)

If you read even a few of my articles, or follow some of the news in alternative media, you will eventually see that big money goes with big money. The problem with big money in government is that it gobbles up  your money even if your money is not big.

I am not big money. Big money does not donate to my campaign because if I should win I would approve their wishes only if their wishes made sense to the whole community, and that seldom happens.

Republicans as Democrats PDF Print E-mail

We have a little problem here. In our party's zeal to be "inclusive", we have been including some positions that are contrary to our principles. Generally, "welfare" is a liberal democrat's dream issue. Welfare for the poor is sometimes unavoidable, but welfare for the rich is certainly not anything to support.

 

Welfare for the rich is still welfare.
