As a candidate, I feel we ought to be out meeting voters and asking what their needs are. Sharing your vision with the voters, so they can make an informed decision about your candidacy.
I feel whenever there is money involved with our political landscape, it can be compromised. The process would have to have an oversight component.
Yes, because there have been too many people that have sacrificed their life for the 'RIGHT 2 VOTE'. I am part of the special groups that have been fighting to earn the 'RIGHT 2 VOTE'.
