About the Candidate: 

Steven Cody Reynolds, like many transplanted Oregonians, hails from the State of Hawaii, via California. At the age of 18 Steven moved to Portland in order to help his sister with her son. Steven’s desire to serve led him to an enlistment in the Army Infantry in 1997 where he served honorably with the 101st Airborne Division. In 1998 he was given the opportunity to attend West Point and in 1999 was accepted into the corps of cadets. After four grueling years he graduated from West Point and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Defense Artillery. In 2004, during training, he sustained an injury that ended his military career leading to a medical separation with an Honorable Discharge. His post-military experience entails time as branch manager of a retail mortgage provider, volunteer teacher in China, and several, ongoing entrepreneurial efforts. Cody writes, “I am a fiscally conservative, socially progressive, civil libertarian. I care about eliminating the excesses of our government, fostering innovation and commerce, and strengthening the programs that protect our most vulnerable citizens. I care that our government is encroaching upon our liberty through legislation and mandate while edging away from the covenants established by our Constitution.

About the Candidate: 

Chuck serves as a Family Service Counselor in Oregon. Prior to that he had worked in the Telecom; Tourism; and Capital Equipment Sales industries. He is attended both Texas Christian University and the University of Oregon. His prior governmental experience includes serving in the U.S. Army Military Police and as the Reform Party State Chair. Chuck writes, “Congressional approval rates an all-time low and they’re running the place like a circus, thinking we’re P.T. Barnum’s suckers. Well, they’re right. We keep sending the same clowns back to Washington expecting them to change the show. K Street lobbyists line our representatives’ pockets luring them away from people on Main Street. So much money thrown at both sides of issues guarantees nothing will get done to benefit the public. It’s not in politicians’ best interest to change things. The system rewards them with money and votes without demanding accountability. Why do anything different if they get re-elected even when we don’t approve of their performance? Federal spending increases yearly, crushing debt continues to rise and real unemployment and underemployment approaches 30%. Government intrusion steals our Liberties, high taxes and over-regulation devastate small business and paltry returns on investments and retirement funds have Grandma working instead of enjoying the golden years for which she saved. You know we can’t continue down this path. You want real change, but fear wasting your vote on a third-party candidate. But casting your vote for a Republican or Democrat is the real waste, keeping them at the same trough they’ve fed from for over a century. The only possible outcome in a two-party race is more of the same corruption and gridlock we get every time we send them back. I need your help to end the foolishness in Washington, DC. Let’s make history by learning from it. Together we can make a difference.
