Additional comment from candidate:

I am the second candidate to ensure a place on the ballot and am the only Write In candidate. I am the only disabled Veteran and Veteran of the US Army. I am proud that I am not a lawyer or career politician and am running because the latter has placed our cities, counties and state into insecurity and insurmountable debt. It is time for the people to be represented by them and not politicians!
