I am running because I feel a strong need to give back to this country that has given me so much and frankly because I have been repeatedly dissatisfied with my elected representatives and the options presented to me to replace them. I believe that elected officials should be stewards of the constitution and advocates for their constituents rather than highly compensated puppets of a broken political system.
As a small business owner, I am faced with the challenges of leadership and goal attainment on a daily basis. Running a small business is like trying to hit an ever-moving target. Change is the only constant. The success of my business depends on my fiscal responsibility, my ability to hire the right people and how well I take care of my clients. Operating independently and being responsible for the livelihood of others has required me to be practical, nimble and selfless; which I have done successfully since I started my first company in 2003.
