Favorite President and Why:
Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He was the right man for the time of the worst economic hardship in America. FDR's programs and policies gave the people jobs, a sense of self-worth, and proof that sometimes, government can help.
Reason for Seeking Public Office:
America is changing quickly, and in many ways not for the better. This change is dynamic and can be steered to make America a better place for our children, but it will require new leadership and new ideas for change, rather than rehashing old ideas and the old partisan sparring that prevents us from moving forward in a positive fashion. We have lost much of our luster as the center of democracy and as the leader of the free world. Keeping our people healthy and secure, while gaining energy independence, will keep us a shining beacon of prosperity, but not without major changes. My candidacy represents that change.
