Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

  I believe that you must serve you local community well before taking on larger tasks in Government. Every one has the right to speak their mind in a civil manner.  I want to listen and understand the residents I serve .  I believe some folks get in the  political arena to help better their communities and others have a agenda they want pushed ,,   I have a passion to do the right thing for my community and make it better for our young so they can re-enforce that valve to their children as well ,    If you vote for Michael O'Connor , I will serve my community and make sure our voices are hear at the county level.
