We need to "drain the swamp." From what I've observed, major decisions in Columbia are usually made by evaluating which special interests support a proposal and which oppose it. Rarely is the will of the people brought into account, and even more rare is the consideration of what is actually right and wrong. Part of the problem is that we have a "legislative state" where a handful of politicians are drunk with power. A prime example of this failure is the recent V.C. Summer nuclear plant debacle. I support moving power toward the executive branch to restore balance and create clear lines of responsibility. I am also working to enact term limits for committee chairmen. Most importantly, I pledge to keep in touch so that you, the people of District 38, are always able to hold me accountable to stand for your values.
