Jumping in Pools is proud to present interview number 116 in our ongoing series. Today we are fortunate enough to be interviewing GOP candidate for the House of Representative Bill Randall, from North Carolina's 13th Congressional District. Mr. Randall is a veteran of the armed forces and faces Democrat Brad Miller in the fall elections.
1. Why are you the best candidate for your district?
I intend to listen to the constituents, research the issue thoroughly, and vote according to sound principles that best represent the voters. My military and business experience will enable me to bring a measure of leadership that is critical for a U.S. Representative.
2. What is the #1 priority you would tackle for the people of North Carolina?
Jobs (in the private sector) and revitalizing the economy.
3. Do you support repealing/rewriting the recently passed Health Care Reform bill?
If this bill was passed on the basis of truth (and not deception), actually cuts costs as promised, and delivers an improvement of overall health care to the country... why would I want to have it repealed? But on the other hand, if it was fraudulent legislation, increases the financial burden on the American people, and does NOT improve the overall health care of the country (as we were told it did) ...I will lead the charge to repeal the bill.
4. Has President Obama been better/worse than you expected?
President Obama has not delivered on the promises he made while running for office. He has done nothing to veto (stop) the terrible legislation that the majority party has passed in the past 18 months (against the will of most Americans). In this respect, I’d have to say that President Obama’s performance has been disappointing.
5. What has been your proudest moment in public service?
Serving on active duty in the United States Navy. While on active duty, I was most proud of having been selected to serve as a Command Master Chief aboard a guided missile cruiser: USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) in the year 2000.
6. When did you decide to run for Congress?
My decision to run was made after my wife and I prayed about it in June 2009.
7. Anything else you'd like to add?
I hope that the voters support a candidate on the merits of their candidacy… instead of their political party. If a fair and honest comparison is made, most will find me to be a person who will represent their interests in Washington D.C. better than my political opponent. Thank you.
