May 27th, 2021, my town was evacuated due to the Spur Fire. It
destroyed 30 structures, and 13 homes. That day changed my life. I
watched the fire threaten everything we knew, and when we fled that day,
we didn’t know if we would be starting over. It shook my very soul. In the
aftermath, the Firefighters used so much water fighting the fire, that we
had water restrictions for days. The power lines and the phone lines also
burned, so we were without power for days, and internet for weeks.
As I watched the community come together, and take care of each other
during and after the fire, I was utterly inspired. Political differences meant
nothing when peoples homes were burning and their lives destroyed.
From that day forward, I decided I would do everything in my power to
bring that same community spirit to every aspect of my life. I am
determined to solve every problem I face.
I am an inventor with a passion for learning. In response to the fire, my
current project is focused on using chemistry and materials science to
create a cheaper artificial pumice. It’s a durable, lightweight, fireproof
building material and natural insulation. Other projects focus on
desalination and water treatment, carbon capture, and more efficient light
collection for solar energy. I firmly believe that every problem can be
solved by creative minds. Modern problems require modern solutions; by
investing in innovation we can solve problems using modern solutions and
create prosperity for our people for generations to come. America can
choose to lead the world through the next industrial revolution.
I am running for congress as an independent because I do not feel
represented. I seek to build a broad coalition among Americans who feel
the system is not working. I offer All-American ideas that will improve
everyone’s lives. My platform’s policy positions include cost-effective
structural changes to shift power back to the people, away from
government and business interests. These steps will revitalize our
democracy from the ground up, creating a grassroots trickle-up economy.
I truly believe when people are heard, represented and participating in
democracy, everyone prospers.
EDIT: I am an Independent running against Paul Gosar. Check the new congressional maps. District 9 is now Western Arizona. I am 100% grassroots, people powered, anti-corruption. These are the first things I would do if elected.
Overturn the Citizens United ruling.
Legislate that current lobbying practices are bribery and racketeering.
Ban Congressional and governmental insider trading.
