Home About John D.

First of all, let me point out that I am not a politician. Politicians have not done too well with the state of the country lately, and I believe it is time to change things. I am an everyday person, like all of you out there who think that it is time to make a difference. A person who, like many of you, is frustrated with the way things are going. A person who is tired of feeling slighted. A person who believes it is time to change, to give the government back to the people, instead of to corporations. This is what I want to work on.

Secondly, I am not here to badmouth other people, I have found that in most political campaigns, the only thing we hear is how one politician did something wrong and the other did something else wrong. That is now how I want to run my campaign. I want to run on my merits, not someone elses faults.

And finally I understand what the people of America are going through. I have gone through it myself. I was not raised with a silver spoon, and, like many of the people of America I did not have a privileged life. I was raised by a single mother who worked harder than anyone I know to support my sister and myself, and she would sacrifice endlessly to give us a chance. I know what it is like to want and not have. I have worked steadily since I was 16, I have had minimum wage jobs, I have worked 60 hours a week to make ends meet. I have been unemployed and had to live off unemployment when I was laid off from one of the major mortgage companies that went bankrupt. I have had to scramble to find a job when I was a contractor and the contract ended on me with no notice. I have worried about my health when I wasn't able to afford health insurance. I know what it is like to be part of the middle class. I understand how it can seem like every thing is working against you. That is what I want to work on fixing.

I believe evyerone has a say and we have some realistic, practical ideas for lasting change in our government. It is time to put those ideas into effect.

And I will work my hardest for everyone.
