In a letter to the editor of QCOnline with the headline Bill Fawell A Better Choice For Congress In The 17th District, Nancy Brandt asks the people of the 17th CD to consider Bill Fawell for congress.
Fawell is running as an independent and will need to have 14,000 signatures in order to get on the ballot, and we all know how welcoming the Establishment Party is to those who want to horn in on their sacred ground.
Go to the second link for the scoop on Bill, but so far he is alone in talking about issues in the 17th CD. He says if elected,he will either sponsor or co-sponsor these four bills now pending in Congress:
HR24/SB209 which a bill authorizing the audit of the Federal Reserve
SB1663 is the Write The Laws bill that would prohibit policies being created by agencies and written by lobbyists. Radical, no?
SB1664 is the One Subject at a Time Act which would end omnibus bills where everything including the kitchen sink is included in bills, requiring each bill to stand alone on one subject only.
SB1665 is the Read The Bills Act, which is my personal favorite. This would require each bill to be read aloud before the vote is taken. This would prevent many of the unpleasant surprises hidden in legislation. If this becomes law, maybe they could hire Phil Hare to read them, since he bravely read the Obamacare bill THREE TIMES!
I have Fawell’s campaign website on my blogroll, not because I necessarily think he will be able to overcome the challenges of running as an Independent, but because he is interesting and so far he is the only candidate for 17th CD who is actually talking about issues and things that matter.
Fawell stands alone as the “better choice” and maybe the ONLY choice between two Establishment Party candidates who have very few differences and very much in common.
