John understands that trust can be only earned over an extended period of time by confronting problems with practical solutions and being honest with your constituency. It is not restored overnight or over an election cycle. He also knows that being an effective representative is more then just attending photo opportunities and constituent events, its about doing the right thing and having your actions speak louder then your words. It is about remembering who you are, where you came from, and what you stand for no matter what the circumstances may be or what political pressures may come to bear. It is about representing the interests of your constituency and not your own.
