Biographical
General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

These are tough times. By now, I think we can agree that there is only one way to have a positive effect on the outcome of change. The right way is through involvement. As you may be aware the 103rd House District will be changing elected officials due to term limits. I want to have a positive effect on the residents of the 103rd House District by being your next State Representative. I believe that I am the right choice for the right change Michigan needs.

It takes far more effort than putting your name on the ballot, sending out mailers or yes, even having a web site to win an election. It takes hard work and dedication to getting the job done. Right now, my job is to meet the residents of Iosco, Missaukee, Ogemaw and Roscommon counties. I want to listen to your concerns, and I want to give you a voice in Lansing. Since announcing my candidacy, I have traveled to each county, meeting will all segments of the communities there. The 103rd District covers a large area, and I am still meeting many of its residents. If I don't get to meet you personally, I want you to know that this is a race I am committing my time and resources to. I intend to do the hard work needed to win this election. But, I know all my efforts won't be enough to run the race. Winning is not something I can do alone -- I need your help, and your commitment to RUN WITH RENDON.

I promise you that my hard work and dedication to this district will not end once elected. I look forward to representing you in Lansing by making the right choices for the right changes to bring Michigan back.
