I ran for city council a few months ago. I planned to run for ONE TERM and restore citizen representation instead of endorsing career politics. The filing fee was $144. And if I were willing to bother people at home I would have won. Without knocking on a single door or making a call, I got over 500 votes.
Now Denny Heck is not running for re-election in my district. I started the process for a one-term Congressional run. Do you know what the filing fee is?
One thousand seven hundred forty dollars.
I see things like that and the Top Two primary that was enacted in 2004- it’s like an election before the election, and it sure looks like the status quo of the two-party system is in place and preventing any improvement.
Are you interested in citizen representation over career politics?
