I am seriously running for Congress in the 5th District as an Independent Candidate.
A representative of the people must represent ALL the people in our district. There must be a wide range of experience that includes engagement and advocacy for more than one generation, more than one political, ideological or philosophical understanding of how the real world functions.
What can we do to challenge the powers that be within a two-party system that is actually not useful in its current form?
We start right where we live … right here at home.
In thinking about what I might do and how I might do it, I did some research into what shakes up a system on the local level. Obviously, perhaps the most powerful individual personal shake-up at the local level is that of an incumbent who is challenged for election and then who loses that election.
