Favorite Political Leader or Role Model:
 
 
 
 
Muckrakers.  While they are often unpopular and tend to bring up issues that would be easier or simpler to ignore, the importance of the role they play - or can play - in identifying areas of need and corruption cannot be ignored.  Especially today, when anyone with a Facebook account or Twitter handle can post whatever they want online, whether factual or not, and see it go viral on social media within hours if not minutes, the need for dedicated and informed citizens armed with the fact and not opinion is all the more critical.

Favorite Political Leader or Role Model:


 
 

Jon Stewart;  Jon Stewart was a truth teller.  Informing the public of what/who was behind the curtain pulling the levers. Showing you the other side of things, is a goal that he and I share.  Jon shined a beacon of light into the darkest places and he did so with humor and intelligence.  One of my favorite quotes of Jon's is, "The best defense against the bull--t is vigilance.  So if you smell something, say something."  Honesty, integrity and transparency, these are the things I hold dear.  I'm nowhere near as funny as Jon.  Maybe, someday.
