The Founding Fathers had a vision for who should serve in our United States Congress—community leaders, business leaders, and other respected figures in the community, like those who founded this great nation, should be representing their constituents in Congress. My great-great-great-grandfather who I was named after, was a well-respected judge who put everything on the line in 1861—at the start of the Civil War to serve his constituents in Congress. Today, many of the people in Congress are career politicians who have been there for 10, 20, or even over 30 years. That is not what the founders intended, and it needs to stop
Washington should be a place where people cycle through, offering their unique insight and then returning to real life. I will bring a unique business-minded outlook to Congress, and then before I fall into the lazy cycle of seeking re-election over and over, I will get out.
Therefore, I am excited to announce on October 26, 2021, I signed the Term Limits Pledge, stating that if elected to Congress I will support, sponsor, and co-sponsor legislation that limits the terms people can serve in federal office. Do-nothing career politicians are the sickness of our democracy, we need a consistently fresh perspective, and limit bought-out career politicians who are only in office to serve themselves.
