Why vote for me and not the other candidate: They have a vested interest in a failed District. Through asymmetric thinking learned through my Strategic Technology and Business Management Certificates at The U of Illinois Entrepreneur Center; and the fact Toledo was voted worst place to get a job in Iowa along with Tama County designated the 3rd poorest county, this is a non-starter for me. Einstein said, Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. If you want to stay in your comfort zone, DON'T VOTE for ME.

What are my qualifications? I'll be the biggest baddest lobbyist/game changer Tama County has ever seen. (Just ask Carroll Reasoner, head legal attorney at the University of Iowa.) I'm not concerned with the leaders but the parking meters. 125 hrs of Engineering related courses, I've lived overseas, I just finished sustainable energies, ( I'll put up what I learned in Sustainable Energies up against my primary opponents Masters in Water Quality, in a debate anytime anywhere.) I have extensively taken Entrepreneur Classes, I'll put my expertise up against my primary opponents involvement in the disastrous Tama Economic Commission in a debate anytime anywhere. My opponent dislikes large companies such as Deere and is also critical of STEM.preparation. Science, Technology and Engineering are the keys to getting out of the rust bucket mentality. Having lived and worked in the Silicon Valley in San Jose, California, I've lived and seen what a positive mental attitude can due. I've worked at Deere and the laser companies Spectra-Physics and Coherent. The question isn't should we support STEM, in my candidacy,we'll literally have no time to lose. My foots to floor on day on this one.

Likes of Tama County:

-People are not so much interest in the theoretical but what works

Dislikes of Tama County:

-The young people's brain drain. Education will be number one with me, teachers are not simply baby sitters, one of my personal quest would be to increase the number of students who pass the Calculus AP test prior to college. (I'll personally tutor them if need be.) Think of the movie of "Stand and Deliver" on steroids.

I've also rehabbed several historic homes. I appreciate the historical relevancy of District 72. Its appalling to see once Victorian Tama reduced to cobbled messes,

I know District 72 would be taking a big chance on a dark hours like me. Once in a great while a Sea Biscuit comes along, buoying hopes and aspiration for a generation of depression stricken individuals. Give me the vote and you'll really see what a human race horse is!
