Additional comment from candidate:

The founding fathers of our nation thought that a representative leader should possess the qualities of virtue and wisdom. The voters should choose me to represent them in Washington, DC for my knowledge, skill, philosophy, and integrity. I understand the fiduciary responsibility inherent in a leader and representative.

When elected to this position, there will no longer be exclusivity and unjust enrichment but an open door policy welcoming all constituents to the table and working to take action for everyone. As a physician and attorney, I have the knowledge and experience in the medical field to take action on healthcare issues. As an attorney, I have the knowledge and legal expertise on economic issues facing the next session. As a contractor and small business owner, I realize that the economy needs a kick start and a jobs program of the peop
