Tell us about yourself: who you are, where you're from, etc.

I am a career Army Officer from Forks, Washington. Currently a Colonel on Active Duty.

What does being a "Centrist" mean to you, and why did you get involved?

Centrist means being rational, having empathy for other's viewpoints, and doing what is right for America.

What is a policy issue you are passionate about and why?

Foreign Policy: Finding the right balance between Diplomacy and Defense. Avoid needless wars - wield our military power only after all other options have been exhausted.

How do you think we can unite our country and fix our politics?

We need to energize the folks who are disgusted with empty rhetoric and mindless propaganda. Promote intelligent candidates who communicate powerfully without condescending - who bring the less educated up to the level of informed citizen instead of taking advantage of the anxiety that accompanies the lack of information.
