Representing “We The People” in

First let me say that I’m not a lawyer. I think we have too many in government already and nothing is getting done. I am a hard-working small business owner who believes that anyone with drive and a willingness to serve can make a difference. I represent a new breed of Republicans who align themselves as “Constitutional Conservatives” whose common goal is to put the power back in the hands of the people.

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth and have suffered greatly like many others since the economy crash in 2007. What has helped me over the years is my constant drive to do better no matter what the circumstances. I have a unique perspective of the common man’s struggle which is rare in Washington. Most politicians are out of touch with real American’s and their plight.

As a nation we must realize there is no government entitlement program that will bring people out of poverty. It is an individuals hard work and diligence that is needed to bring about change in their situation. Governments job should be to get out of their way and let them do what is needed.

In order for this economy to prosper again, we need existing businesses to grow and for individuals to open new businesses from which I know from personal experience is not an easy thing to do, and to encourage manufacturing to expand operations to areas where jobs were once thriving but have since moved out of the area like we see in this district.

This country needs people who care about preserving freedom, limiting the scope of government in our lives, limiting unnecessary regulations and taxes so businesses can grow and create more jobs, make it possible to utilize our natural resources to their full potential to lower energy costs, and make sure everyone has an educational opportunity to better themselves so every generation can have a fighting chance to achieve “The American Dream”.

In this site I have highlighted some of my ideas to bring back jobs and create more job opportunities with much-needed education reform, economic reform and just plain common sense ideas that will benefit us all. It’s not going to be easy and it won’t happen overnight but we must start somewhere.

If elected in 2016, I promise to do my very best to get this country back on the path our founders envisioned where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. I have high hopes we can change the direction of this nation for real growth and prosperity but it starts with you.

No matter what happens on Tuesday I want to thank all who have helped me, all who have supported me and all who have believed in me to be your representative in Washington. My goal is a simple one and that is to be a statesman in the tradition of our forefathers whose desire was to serve the citizens with common sense bipartisan representation. I know not everyone will agree with everything I believe in but being someone who holds to the rule of law, if elected my decisions will be solely based upon constitutional guidelines and not by influence from special interest groups, big business or lobbyist.

Thank You for your continued support,
Al Hardwick

It’s time for politicians to work for the people and not special interest groups or big corporations.
