We face many changes and challenges to remain rural while supporting vibrant villages and towns. The high taxes,  lack of senior and mental health services, poor roadways, little accountability for politicians, and out of control spending all affect our quality of life every day. You have been telling me things seem broken or worse here year by year. And I agree! How with so many good people is this happening?



Whether you support my vision and leadership for Dutchess County or my Ideas to improve the quality of life everywhere, I need your support to reach more people and that costs money. Please consider a contribution of any amount to support my work. You are also supporting Common Sense politics and an Independent candidate. Stop the division and stagnation party politics have become. Support the future!



 I have spent my adult life studying politics and political history, seeing the process of representation be eroded in favor of backroom decisions rife with cronyism and conflicts of interest. I have owned businesses and had jobs that connected face to face with 1000’s of everyday people to learn on the ground what we had to say as a country.A career as a pollster also serves me well in repairing what is broken in government.



There is no better way to connect with your fellow neighbors than to Volunteer. You will meet all kinds of incredible people who make up America and hear first hand what others experience living and working here.This is the purpose of the Common Sense movement!



Support your local Police , EMT and ALL medical and infrastucture workers!!!

MORE COMING SOON ON THESE HARD TIMES!!!! There is a bright future ahead! Hang on Help each other and I'll have more news soon on how, why and solutions.

THANK YOU!!!!! I cannot say enough about all the great people who supported and contributed to this campaign! Your vote means a lot! Almost 400 people in Pawling and District 23 who were smart, progressive and ready for real change and an end to politics as usual stood up and voted for me. I’m sure many more were close to that decision, To find and elect better candidates without any strings and ties to party control. Again your support is something I will never forget!

Its time all across America for a third party. The time has come to see we have short sighted bad government that month by month falls further from serving us, protecting us and doing what we wanted it to do over 200yrs ago. Time to stop keeping up the façade that everything is OK, Its not, You can make believe it is but stay tuned here for all the reasons it is not, with pictures, references, solutions included.
