Statement: As an independent candidate inspired by Theodore Roosevelt and his Bull Moose Party, I can stay detached from the endless partisan squabbles. The two parties behave like a badly divorced couple while citizens are forced to choose sides.
It is time for independent thinkers with local and global experience to come forward with fresh ideas and participate in government. An open-minded problem solver, I can work with all representatives to identify common ground and work towards mutual goals. I will strive relentlessly toward a positive future for this district that protects our families, farms and forests. Hablo Espanol
