Statement: Alex listens. He works with others to bring together contrasting ideas to get results. A team player, he’s been recognized by his peers for his ability to bring balance to teams that would otherwise struggle.

Alex has lived around the country and experienced how things work in red, blue, and purple states. District 1 is representative of those diverse political, religious and racial backgrounds. Appreciating that a different worldview doesn’t make someone an “idiot” or “bigot” has been lost in recent political discussion. We need people in office who can relate to the differences and respectfully move towards common ground.

Don’t let Alex’s lack of political experience be a deterrent; consider it an asset. An engineer by training, Alex analyzes problems in detail, develops solutions, and determines the best options. It’s a crucial skill set that can only benefit our current political climate.

We need disciplined approaches to solve our country’s most pressing issues. Balancing the budget, comprehensive tax reform, and healthcare all require tough decisions. It is clear the Washington process is broken. Extreme legislators from both sides of the aisle have not allowed real progress to be made on these and other critical issues. We need to consider solutions from the entire political spectrum, stop blaming the other party, roll up our sleeves, and get to work. If we truly want change, we need to vote differently. Neither party has shown the capability to address our problems. Let’s focus on people that can get things done without the burden of party affiliation. Review my website. Read my stance on issues. Don’t throw away your vote on the two options that created our political gridlock. Choose Alex Storms, a vote for solutions over partisanship.
