Argentine, Jasmin Talbert is listening...to you. In a revolutionary new campaign, Talbert is making only two campaign promises to her voters in the upcoming November 2010 elections: if elected, she's only going to serve one term and whenever a large issue comes up for a vote in Congress, she will vote the way you tell her to.
How is this possible? Talbert plans to launch a poll on her website to encourage dialogue with her voters. Civic participation is not only encouraged, it is essential. For instance, if Talbert were in Congress right now and a vote on the pending healthcare bill was imminent, Talbert would explain the pros and cons of the bill to voters on her website and residents of the 3rd District of Kansas, which includes Argentine, would get to weigh in.
Skeptics may question this method, wondering how to control who gets to vote and who doesn't. Talbert's campaign staff is working on implementing address controls to ensure only residents of the 3rd District get to vote and only one vote per household is cast.
But who is Jasmin Talbert? Well, she's no politician. She's an average citizen, just like you, who resides and works as a geophysicist in Johnson County, Kansas. She's tired of Washington's broken promises, and she's fed up with Congress ignoring the American people. And she wants your vote.
Talbert will kick off her 2010 campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives this weekend at the 3rd District Candidate Debate and Forum at Blue Valley Northwest Highschool at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 20, 2010. The event is hosted by The Hope for America Coalition and The Coalition of Citizen Advocacy Groups. The participating candidates will be asked questions that have been submitted by voters of the 3rd District, who are encouraged to attend.
The author encourages other 3rd District of Kansas candidates to contact the Argentine Examiner for interviews in order to facilitate fair coverage of the 2010 election.
