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.
We are in the cellar more worse than the 2018 Baltimore Orioles and we need to get back to a slightly more marginal team for the next cycle in the California Republican Party.
The first goal is a vision. Without a vision there is no mission for us. We need to tell people why they should choose us over the governing state Democratic Party. What better ideas could we provide to solve the pain points of the California resident and business owner?
After the chairman election we have to get the next platform draft written, the next draft should be a fresh and new platform draft so we can show that we are a new party. Average voters do not pay attention to the document, but the news media and the rabid base in both parties do watch the platform.
The second goal is taking care of the brand, we have to restore the brand after the Democratic Party saying we are a bunch of racists and other pejorative titles. Even though there are people of ethnic communities who may have traditionalist values, they still vote for the Democratic Party even though they don’t like the new graphic sexual education law passed in Sacramento that their state legislator voted for as an example.
The third goal is money, without money we die harder than an airplane test pilot. We have to get people to help register voters, canvass neighborhoods and over ballot collection services with the new legalized harvesting of ballots. 5 or 10 dollars a month, if you are fed up with how our state is going we need to be investors. Democrats donated like there was no tomorrow and we have to do the same. Look into Carl DeMaio’s Reform California or the state Republican Party voter registration effort fund if Travis Allen or Steve Frank win the office in late February.
In addition to being candidate for State Senate District 20, I also sit as member on the state, Los Angeles and San Bernardino County Parties as your nominee for 2018. I am concerned about our future prospects as a state party, the same trajectory is not going to cut it.
I agree we got a decent cash injection in the last five years, but in exchange for the cash injection we sold our soul where many Republicans and people who lean to vote in our party lost the enthusiasm for our candidates after being served statewide candidates that had little or no difference to the Democratic Party choices.
We have to be different because people will want the real thing instead of a pale imitation. We want candidates and office holders to stand up against the state Democrats instead of jumping in the pool with them. Voter registration and voter education will be necessary as soon as possible so we can help get the electorate to make change. Continue reading “Better State Party Leadership Is Needed”
