Government bureaucracy and inefficiency should not frustrate the good works of charities and non-profit community organizations. Government should be responsive to constituents’ concerns and issues, seek to resolve them, and maintain open communication with the citizens it serves. As a volunteer for various organizations, I’ve seen first-hand how government can both help and hurt. Inefficiencies in government bureaucracy waste tax dollars that could be used to help people and enliven our communities. I will work to make government less bureaucratic. I will listen to your ideas and concerns and will work in a bi-partisan way to find solutions. And I will uphold the ethical standards that you expect and deserve. This is your government.
