The Munson Exploratory Committee is being established to see if I have potential to run in the 35th Congressional District. The goal is to provide a fresh perspective for the residents of our district that covers the Los Angeles County city of Pomona, portions of Riverside County in Eastvale, San Bernardino County cities of Montclair, Chino, Ontario, portions of Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, and Upland.
I have lived in the district for over 40 years, graduated from Chaffey High School and UC Riverside and have previously worked in the public and private sectors from working in a warehouse to helping customers in the public sector.
The first issue is we can do better than our incumbent Norma Torres. There are better ways to accomplish the goals she desires without leading to negative externalities. Our border cannot be a blue light special to call the days of department store K-Mart, yes there are countless people who want to be part of our nation, but we cannot just let people in with no accountability. The issue of abortion should not be in polar extremes where our congress member holds the absolutist position where abortion should happen on demand for any reason where the taxpayer must pay for it.
We also can do better than my party’s two-time challenger Mike Cargile. We had problems getting challengers to run in this district in years past and I tried to be a team player by helping him get on the ballot the first time. Mike ended up getting in the cross hairs of the leftist media and went unendorsed twice for being a loose cannon. Yes, we may have differences with diverse groups, but we should not blanketly target communities. We should attack the ideas that may cause offense instead.
We are representing people where we cannot utilize our personal perspectives entirely, but we must make sure we are getting the best result possible for our district and our nation. I am here not to be crazy, and I am here not to be nasty. I am here to articulate a sorely needed different point of view.
If you are ready to sign my petition in the fall or donate to my campaign I will be ready to see if we are ready to launch.
