Candidate for San Jose City Council District 1, 2014



Political Party

The office of city councilman is a non-partisan position. However, for transparency’s sake, I am officially registered as a No Party Preference (Independent). I have issues with both the Democratic party and the Republican party. With the Democrats, I can agree with many issues, but due to an element that seems hostile to Christendom I have parted ways with this party. The Democrats also tend to favor the secular humanist philosophy which I oppose. I believe that the Republican party has better business solutions than the Democratic party but can tend to cater to the wealthier segment of the population. With the philosophy of less government and cutting expenses the Republican party offers no alternatives to the more vulnerable of our society but to “cut them off.” If I were to declare myself a political party I would deem myself a Christocrat (with the definition of this being of recognizing the resurrected King Jesus Christ as rightful ruler of planet Earth). I have no intention of creating such a political party nor would I want to see one created. It is an individual choice.
