About the Candidate: 

Mike writes, “I am 40 years old, and my wife and I have been together for over 10 years. We have two sons, who are 10 and 8 years old. We moved to Stewartstown in January of 2001 from Maryland. I have been a police officer for the Baltimore County Police Department for 18 years, and my wife has been a stay-at-home mom since our youngest son was born. It has been very difficult to do this financially, but we felt that it was important for our sons. Until the spring of 2010, I was a registered Republican. My frustrations with the Republican Party came to a head after that primary election. For years, I have listened to Republicans saying one thing to get elected, and then doing another after getting in office. I watched them bloat the government, increase spending, start wars, and enact legislation to further erode our liberties. I felt as if I was always keeping a scorecard to keep the Republicans straight on what they actually believed in and voted for. I researched the Libertarian Party platform and found that it fit with my political viewpoints. The main idea behind my getting more politically active was to ensure a future for my sons and their children. Nothing seems to ever change in Washington, but nothing will change until we take the actions necessary to do so. The founding fathers were not all millionaires and/or lawyers. There is no reason why our Congress has to be either.
