About the Candidate: 

Paul writes, “I’ve made my living as a computer programmer for the last 20 years and for the last 8 years I’ve been working at a leading software company based in Beltsville, MD. I’m a single father of four. My eldest son has recently started working with me. I’ve spent the majority of my life living in the Pasadena area in Anne Arundel County, which is where I currently reside. I had been a lifelong Republican, but have found myself at odds with the party for the last couple of years. I believe in a smaller government, which is what the Republicans claim to want, but seem to forget when it comes to individuals’ civil liberties. I became engaged with politics at a relatively young age, I found myself discussing the issues of the time with friends and family in my later teen years and my early 20’s. At 25, I ran and was elected to the Chesterfield Home Owners Association Board of Directors, where I learned Parliamentary procedures and had to make tough decisions for the greater good of the community. I also learned to weigh complicated financial situations and managed to work with the other board members to accomplish everything in the budget without having to raise community dues. The reason I’ve decided to run is because, I’ve found myself in a situation where the United States seems to be imploding on itself and creating a financial burden so big that our great grandchildren will still be paying for it.
