Over the past few months my wife and I have talked extensively and prayed about the possibility of me running for State Rep in the 83rd District. We've weighed all the options, discussed the strain this could put on our family, and have taken into account my passion for my current job as VP of a small architectural firm in Port Huron. With all things considered, one thing is still glaringly evident; Lansing is in desperate need of more principled, conservative leaders.
Simply talking about small government, fiscal responsibility, and an honest, transparent political process isn't enough. It's time we send a representative to Lansing who will take a stand on principle and do what is right for the people rather than give in to big money and lobbyists.
I often hear how unpopular conservatism is becoming, but I would argue that it's a result of conservative talk without conservative action. We can't continue to settle for budgets that increase year after year, government policies that pick winners and losers resulting in unfair competition and regulations for small business owners, and an overly regulated and over tested education system that no longer allows educators to do what they are trained to do, just to name a few. Michigan is in desperate need of more legislators willing to act on their conservative campaign talk and that's exactly what I plan to do for the 83rd District.
