David Miller for Congress, his staff and volunteers joined La Verne's downtown area where the La Verne Chamber of Commerce hosted a wide variety of exhibitors displaying the community's cache of hot rods, restored classic cars, food vendors, community organizations and candidates for public office at the Cool Cruise 2012 La Verne Business Expo on Saturday.
With weather typical of Southern California and ambiance enhanced by locally legendary classic rock cover band, The Answer, many exhibitors showcased their unique and vibrantly restored classic cars and hot rods. Local family-owned small businesses also attempted to broaden their networks to include the community which is driven by threads of entrepreneurialism, and plays a key role in the tight-knit fellowship for which La Verne is historically renowned.
Joining the festivities in La Verne was David Miller, a family man and small business owner from Glendora who campaigns to represent California's 32nd Congressional District after the November election. Miller was eager to speak with voters while a squad of his campaign volunteers swept the downtown area, distributing campaign literature and pocket Constitutions that included the Declaration of Independence.
Miller spoke of the vital role founding documents play for citizens to keep their government in check. "Without an understanding of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and other founding documents, citizens cannot know the legal limits of the federal government and what governmental abuses of power were unacceptable to our founders. Every day, more citizens are awakening to find that the economic downturn is caused largely in part by abuses of power by government."
"Extra-constitutional regulations make it nearly impossible for businesses small and large to remain operational, and to keep Americans working. Many of our current legislators step outside of their oath to defend and protect the Constitutional limitations they swore to uphold," Miller said.
"These politicians are ultimately destroying the purchasing power of the dollar by ignoring the limits of their Congressional privileges specified in Article 1, section 8 of the Constitution," said Miller, "and they are only worsening the struggles of American families. The more educated and involved citizens become the better chance we have to fight these abuses of power that affect us all."
Miller will attend the Meet the Candidates Legislative Reception hosted by the San Dimas Chamber of Commerce on May 25, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm at the San Dimas Civic Center.
David Miller is running for California's 32nd Congressional District as a "citizen candidate.' His campaign emphasizes restoring obedience to the Constitution, legalizing freedom, and maintaining America's tradition of economic prosperity.
