Non-Profits

This campaign is about us, not me. It's about making our communities a better place to live, not about my personal goals. 

 

If elected, I will donate 100% of the salary I receive from my position in the house to the top 3 local non-profits that you choose.

 

That's $60,180 (less taxes) each year.

I've been asked a couple times why and how I'm doing this, so I wanted to share more.

 

I've decided to donate my salary back to local non-profits for three main reasons:

  1. There are so many incredible non--profits that need more financial support

  2. During this time when corruption is everywhere within our government, I want to send a clear message that I'm not running for the money. I'm running for our community, and for the people.

  3. I want to let special interest groups know that no one can buy my vote.

I'm able to do this because the Representative position is a part time position. Most representatives have a second position, in addition to their position in the House. If elected, I will be able to continue working which means I will be fortunate enough to donate my government salary back to local non-profits.
