Candidate for the Democratic Nomination for the U. S. Congress
in the June 2020 Colorado Primary Election
(Fifth Colorado Congressional District)
I am an Army veteran and a retired Economist with a career extending over 30 years, mostly with the Federal government but also with the airport development industry. I believe that serious changes must be made to the way politics are conducted and issues are debated and resolved. The recent severe economic crisis was the consequence of decades of criminally destructive mismanagement of the public's interest by the Congress which has resulted in the huge economic inequalities that are destroying the middle class and the taxation base needed to finance government programs. The distribution of personal income has declined to below the disastrous level of 1928, which was partially ameliorated with the restoration of middle class incomes and savings from the doubling of the economy during World War II. The most troubling symptoms of current social unrest from the present economic crisis are the pernicious assault upon our constitutional Bill of Rights protections and the inexcusable failure of the Federal government to help all of the innocent victims of the crisis, especially the homeless. Three other adverse troubling concerns have recently arisen: the implementation of regressive tax law revisions that exacerbate the maldistribution of income and wealth, the Trillion dollar 30 years upgrade of the nuclear arsenal, and the imminent onset of a Second Cold War. The 25 issue papers listed below discuss my thoughts about the problems facing our society and present suggested solutions for those concerns. I have no campaign sponsors or contributors and, if elected, will use my best judgment of what is their effects upon the public interest when voting on issues. I will not be subservient to any partisan ideology and have no intention of becoming a career politician. I would greatly appreciate having the opportunity to be your truly independent Democrat voice in Congress.

I would greatly appreciate your support in the primary election on June 30, 2020.
