12 Principles Washington Should Adhere To

How many of you have been told certain things from a politician only to never see it get done. It is hard for a person to serve two Masters.
  • Take time to do things right the first time. (No more pass this broken bill: we will fix it later.)
  • Practice blameless problem solving. (Playing the blame game in Washington is not fixing the issues.)
  • Look to finding solutions everyone knows what the problems are. (Only focusing on problems is a huge waste of time. We must focus energy on finding solutions.)
  • Communicate with the people. (Transparency is still lacking in Washington. The constituents should know what is happening at all times.)
  • Listen generously. (It is important that you are heard. I will listen to the problems people in Utah face. Congress must stop inflating problems.)
  • Speak Straight and Honest. (Be clear and direct in your message.)
  • Honor commitments. (If you say you will do something, do it! If something is unobtainable. I won't lie or fabricate stories and justify failure.)
  • Take responsibility. (Don't shift the blame when our efforts don't result in victory.)
  • Look ahead and anticipate. (Look at long term ramifications for your actions. See the big picture.)
  • Repair our foundation. (We have drifted away from our foundation. Every piece of legislation proposed should consider what our founders would have done.)
