Bill Maher - East Valley Tribune: Candidates

Bill Maher green-party

"ENDORSED BY YOUR FAVORITE POLITICIAN/ORGANIZATION!

No, not really. I don't solicit endorsements. I don't even accept contributions. Once candidates start accepting outside funding, they lose whatever autonomy they started with and wind up owing political favors their very first day in office. I'm not that kind of candidate.

Wait, let's back up a bit. I'm not even a politician. I was born in Tombstone and grew up in towns and cities across this magnificent state of ours. I've lived in the east valley for 25 years and love the LD16 area. My wife and I help manage a small, family-owned flower shop in East Mesa.

I am running for State Representative to build awareness of third parties in our political process. I'm sick of opening my ballot and finding I don't have any real diversity of choice in candidates. Independents will soon outnumber both Republicans and Democrats in Arizona, yet we keep electing career politicians from the same two broken parties. It's time to break this debilitating addiction.

If elected, I will NOT meet with corporate lobbyists or big-money special interests. I WILL represent the average work-a-day people who truly form the backbone of this great state!"
