A well-functioning society requires strong safeguards against official corruption, which erodes public services as well as public faith in the political system. Corruption can also give unfair advantages to incumbent politicians and create pathways for malign interference by foreign powers. Government accountability and transparency ensure that malfeasance is exposed—and that failed or harmful policies are swiftly corrected. I will never take donations from special interests in exchange for political favors and will always be available to the members of the community. I will hold regular town halls and will gladly take your calls to discuss the issues that you care about.
