Time For Change, Time For Weston Wamp

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

What is the outcome of electing the same 3rd District Congressman again? Nothing changes. Now is the time for change, Weston Wamp for 3rd District.

Some will ask why make a change when the representation of the 3rd District seems to be okay?  We should not settle for okay because it is comfortable.  At times in our life we become comfortable in either or both of our personal and professional life.  When we are in the “comfort-zone” change can be against our nature, however without legitimate change the likelihood of a better or different outcome is unlikely or impossible.  However I am confident many of us may think, “regardless of political party change is what is needed in both the politics and politicians representing this country.”

As a retired colonel with almost 30 years of service I have a good sense of both how to follow and how to lead.  I have formed my opinion during my career in many staff and command positions that include my recent commands in Iraq and Afghanistan.  It is my strong opinion Weston Wamp will be the type of leader we need in the 3rd District.  He will be available to his district at all times and he will quickly bring fresh new conservative ideas to Congress.   Weston has great interpersonal skills, which will result in a quick ascent to important positions in Congress were he and other newly elected like-minded conservatives can finally make appropriate and lasting changes.

Finally if we could put aside our subjective opinions and for a moment ask ourselves, has anything of substance been accomplished by Congressman Fleischmanm in his two terms in Congress?  Do we feel Chuck has communicated with his constituents freely and openly with the media and in person? Has he truly attempted to debate the issues with other candidates? Or does he hide behind the fact the district is mostly conservative so whoever is the Republican candidate in the general election is a shoo-in for the 3rd Congressional District seat?

Change is brewing in Congress and our district desperately needs a change in representation for all people of the district regardless of their politics.
