  • Ugh. Not a serious candidate: Didn't file a statement in the voters pamphlet. No campaign website.
  • Meh. Somehow managed to respond to League of Women Voters' questions: "Top 3 things I want to do if I win. LWVOR.org
    • Yikes. Insane. Jobs; lower the Social Security Retirement age to 60. Make room for the young. Wrong. Retirement age needs to be raised or Carousel implemented. :)
    • Unlikely strategy: National Health Care is a matter of National Security.
    • Silly and wrong: Reinstate the long range missile systems, we need them to protect us from the asteroids & coments, that can destroy the Earth."

  • League of Women Voters' questions: "Top 3 things I want to do if I win." LWVOR.org
    • "Create Jobs" 2010 campaign phrase that replaced 2004's 'fight terrorism'
    • "Reform Healthcare" Brave, but good answer.
    • "Protect the Planet" What no space missiles?

No reason not to re-elect our long-time congressman.
