I am running for the United States House of Representatives because I am the best qualified to serve in this role as the fulfillment of my duty as a citizen of the US. I spent most of my working life in the service of my country as an officer in the United States Navy. I am stepping forward as a candidate for the MI’s 8th District because “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke
I am running a campaign that will return the accountability of U.S. Representatives back to the people who elected them. I am accepting no money from PACs, special interests, organizations, corporations or lobbyists. I am accepting only a maximum of $100 from individuals. It is important for the voters to have “skin in the game” by supporting a candidate with a contribution. If elected, I will be obligated only to them.
