Do you think the political elite are better than you? Do you think they deserve to rule over you and tell you how to live? Do you think elective office should be a twenty year career? Do you think that your money belongs to the well connected to spend on pet projects, crony capitalists, and “consulting fees” for their relatives?
The government is best that governs least.
You are the world’s foremost expert on you, and that no elected official, no matter how intelligent, or wise, or educated has a better idea on how you should live than you do.
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, and no matter how pure of heart, centralized planners will always end up prioritizing their own interests over the public good.
Power corrupts, and the longer a politician is in office, the more corrupt they become.
Political dynasties are inherently corrupt, and no family has a right to rule.
When the people implemented term limits on local politicians, it was to tell them to serve their term, then go home to live under the rules like everyone else, not that it was time all of them to rotate one office over.
Government cannot be for the people unless it is of the people.
If Elected I Will:
Fulfill the duties of Mayor competently, professionally, and without favoritism.
Prioritize Public Safety, Good Roads, and Parks you want to bring your kids to.
Not seek reelection, because this city is not my personal property.
