The Veterans In Politics International has video recorded their interviews for the primary and general election of all the candidates that made time and effort to be interviewed by our group.

The candidates that attended are willing to meet the challenge of an interview in a bipartisan effort to reach out to the veteran community and the community as a whole.

We hope that these interviews will be helpful in the Primary and General Election by placing people in office that are able to apply the US Constitution, acknowledge that we need Judicial Reform, knowledgeable, ethical, experienced, write laws that will benefit all people, able to put childish differences aside and do what’s best for their constituents, put others before themselves, take the oath of office seriously, apply the true meaning of “public servant” and have a vision on resolving the problems that are facing our country and state.

Veterans In Politics International, Inc. established in 1992:

Mission: To educate, organize, and awaken our veterans and their families to select, support and intelligently vote for those candidates whom would help create a better world, to protect ourselves from our own government(s) in a culture of corruption, and to be the political voice for those in other groups who do not have one.

 “Some candidates only get involved in the community when they need your vote.  They make no time outside of this, tending to their personal lives and ignoring the concerns and needs of the Community until they stand to gain from listening.  Some incumbents lose the true meaning of a “Public Servant,” becoming self-involved, and corrupt with their newly found power and money.  They lie to the face of their voters, going directly against your will, feeding you with rhetoric aimed to confuse you.  Can you imagine what is done behind your back?”
