Occupation: Retired family physician
Previous public office: None
Statement: Like most of us, I want something different. I have become so disheartened by our political system that I contemplated either jumping in or dropping out. I decided to jump in because no one else seemed to be doing so in a new, unconventional way. I want to see us get money out of politics, so I am taking no donations, with a self-imposed, self-funded $5,000 campaign limit.
We currently have a government of political parties by politicians for special interests. I want to find a way of governance of the people, by the people, for the people. People want a change… they just don’t know what that looks like. I am standing for a different way. It’s up to the voters to decide whether they want to stand with me.
