PA-2nd (R) Candidate For Congress

I need your support if you would like to see real change in Congress!  I'm running for PA-2 Congress because I am best qualified at fighting for people; especially the people in the District without compromising my integrity.

Growing up, I learned that the promise of our nation depends on each generation of Americans working hard to leave the country a better place than they found it. As a small business man, human resources consultant, educator, trainer, father, grandfather, and member of the Philadelphia community for nearly 2 decades, I dedicated my service to the sacred obligation all citizens have to their communities: making Pennsylvania and America a better, more prosperous, and freer place.

I was born and raised in Luxora, Arkansas, with humble beginnings. I graduated Luxora High School, then joined the war efforts to support freedom in Vietnam under U.S. Navy’s Brother Duty Program. After my brother left active duty, I fought in Beirut and the First Gulf Wars. While keeping myself busy, I was able to attain a BS Degree in Training, Education and Development, a MBA in Business Finance and after retiring, I attended law school under the U.S. GI Bill.

I ran for Congress in PA 8th Congressional District in 2010. It was exciting to use my adapted military background and professional expertise to help deliver national security instruments for the 21st century. My career is marked by a commitment in workforce planning, fiscal common sense, transparency, economic policies, and government accountability.

With many of my clients, I advocated security and surveillance programs, transparency, infrastructure development, and knowledge transfer, a major reason to prepare for a global economy. I promoted counterterrorism programs and those discussions helped to combat corruption and promote good governance. As a results of my efforts, I became known in Africa, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, China, Singapore and Thailand for identifying waste, proposing realistic spending cuts, and offering solutions for organizations in a budget crunch.

While working in corporate positions, I handled a wide spectrum of national and international issues. I directed and managed issues related to immigrations, employment laws, labor & management issues, security and strategic planning, succession planning, workforce planning, veteran issues, job skills, healthcare, and benefits administration. I am a member of the Republican Party, Community Angels Foundation, Bristol Community Weed and Seed, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Republican Council, and the African American Prostate Cancer Foundation.

I need your support to rein in a big government that is out of control. Our government has ignored men and women veterans, who fought for freedom. Our Congress is not policing its own members with serious transgressions. No one fears the wrath of voters to help reform an out of control Congress. Hold both parties accountable for making bad choices. I want to bring integrity and trust to the office of Congress; to eliminate wasteful spending; to cut the size of government; to invest in small business; to re-invest with tax incentives; to reform immigrations; to build a national security program that sustains our borders and protect our allies such as Israel.

Being elected to Congress means so much to me!  If you believe in these similar values, then will you help to fund me and my campaign through this website?  I need to reach my goal of $100,000.00 immediately!  I will be so ever thankful!

My Friends,

Some are calling it a battle in the PA-2nd Congressional District. I like to think that we are starting a much-needed conversation. Either way, I need your help in spreading the word.

Things are out of control and it is time to take a stand. That's why I'm partnering with conservatives such as you, and conservative Members of Congress in supporting me as the endorsed candidate to make needed change in Washington, DC, and in the PA-2nd Congressional District.

I don't have Hollywood celebrities or liberal special interest groups to fund our campaigns. We have hardworking Americans like you who want to create a better life for their children and grandchildren.

James
