I think that many people in Colorado District 2 share my frustration with politics and legislative initiatives going on now in Washington DC. There seems to be a growing sense of disengagement with elected representatives and a belief that we could find better people to represent us. I actually began to feel that no supportable candidate would surface; someone who was not a professional politician and not interested in building their own personal power, and who was willing to represent the people of the 2nd District with independent, common sense beliefs in individual freedom and less governmental control of our lives.
Then I met Stephan Bailey. Stephen has a record of accomplishment in the Armed Forces and business. He worked diligently in the Service, school and business to build a life for his wife, three children and himself. He is a principled person, intelligent, well read, very thoughtful and somewhat quiet, not the typical attributes of politicians today, but certainly the kind of person that we need now to represent us. He decided to run because he is committed to the values that built and will sustain America and believes that principled representation without motivation for personal ego gratification is needed at this time.
If you are a registered Republican, please consider voting for Stephen in the August Primary Elections. Stephen has the qualities and commitment to campaign effectively against the incumbent. He is by far the best candidate to carry the debate to the people and represent them. If you are not a Republican, but share the feeling that things could be better in Washington DC, I would encourage you to find out more about Stephen at his website at www.StephenBaileyforCongress.com. I am relieved to see this fine man come forward to serve in public office.
