Are you disgusted with lapses in leadership integrity? Are you finding it hard to trust many of today's high profile leaders? We demand integrity from our political leaders because we grant them so much power over us. We feel let down by integrity lapses in leaders because we expect so much of them: we want them to improve the fundamental quality of our lives. To be a credible candidate for any job, a person needs the skills and personal qualities to be effective in the role. In addition to being honest, leaders with integrity must behave ethically. Leaders with integrity must have an unwavering commitment to culturally accepted values and be willing to defend them. This requires them to do the right thing even if it is not in their personal interest. I understand why voters are so skeptical about politicians. I believe the legislature as well as politicians needs to be held accountable and do a better job of listening. As your next State Representative District 108, my commitment is to always lead with integrity while serving as a voice for our community.
