The ONLY Candidate to run against the incumbent(s) for State Representative of District 43 - since 2008!
One thing is sure to be true, when you work hard for something and have earned it through hard work and persistence - You WILL appreciate it more and take care of it more than someone who is just given the same thing!

In 2012 - changed strategy and ran against incumbent once again. This time won nearly 40% votes in the General Election!2014 - 3rd time Candidate for State Representative of District 43, which now includes new boundary lines.
