Election Season in Full Swing We Welcome Peter Churchman onto our show to talk about is run for 17th Congressional District of Texas.
Why I am running for Congress I have been interested in politics for some time. I wanted to run in 2012 for Texas State Representative District 46 against Dawanna Dukes (D). I was unhappy with many of the choices she made. Mrs. Dukes seemed to think that the best use for government was to give people more and more. I disagreed. I thought, then as now, that government should stay out of the way and let the free market take care of things. My family and I moved out of the district so that our children would be able to go to a better school, so I ended up not running that year. Last summer I was fed up with our government. We had a change in control of the Executive Branch. I naively thought that with the Republicans in control of both houses and now the Executive Branch they would do something about the deficit and the national debt. Boy, was I wrong about that. Our federal government has gone on a spending spree and grown much larger. We are over 20 trillion in debt now and in 2027 under current law we will be approaching 35 trillion. Meanwhile our government is constantly encroaching on our rights. I was starting to become an unpleasant person to be around because I was angry about the way our government was heading. I made a decision that I would no longer be angry, I would try to change it. We need someone that cares about the people in the rural parts of District 17 as well as the people in Waco and College Station. I am that candidate. Peter Churchman https://www.churchmanfortexas.com/
