There are three major issues I'm running under for Montgomery County Clerk:
- Easier ballot access for all parties: I am a strong activist for easier ballot access for independents and new parties and have been in favor of pending legislation which would reduce the petitioning threshold to that of the Democratic and Republican parties and the reduction of the major party threshold from 5 percent to 2 percent.
- Easier access to vital statistics: I understand your frustration when it comes to the government. You have to petition the government for a copy of your birth certificate or a relative's death certificate. You have to petition the government to be granted a marriage license or civil union. I would love to make that process easier via an online application system which would expedite the process quicker than usual while being in compliance with state laws.
- Easier access to and more secure voting: On average, roughly 60% of Montgomery County residents don't vote and there's usually a wide range of reasons why. If elected, I will assist you through whatever means possible to help improve voter turnout in Montgomery County. Additionally, there have been concerns about the security of electronic voting. To resolve that, I strongly advocate for the adoption of blockchain technology to protect the integrity of all electronic votes and at the same time, give the voters of Montgomery County the feeling that their vote made a difference without fear that domestic or international governments are manipulating elections.
