- My hopes of getting onto the ballot in the November 7, 2006, general election for PA Senate, 42nd district, as an Independent, were terminated in August, 2006. I pulled out of the race while before a PA Judge in Harrisburg after making a case there for 30-minutes. This was just another story in how the power keeps the power and hires lawyers to harrass citizen candidates.
- In 2005 I ran for the same seat and got 2,542 votes in a three way race. I've run for public office in other instances in the past decade as well.
