Why you should support Frank DeMartini

I’m Frank DeMartini and I am running for Congress against Maxine Waters.  

For the last 28 years, Maxine Waters has been occupying a seat in Congress while accomplishing zero for the hard-working families living within her District.  

For her entire 12 terms in Congress , she has been more concerned with following the dictates of her best friend, Nancy Pelosi,  then crusading for the ever-growing needs of the people whom she is paid to represent!  After serving 28 years as a Congresswoman, the only people who seem to have benefited from her efforts have been herself and her family!

It’s time for a change!

Why me?

To begin with, I am a committed, energetic,  family man in my mid-fifties who lives every day dealing with the same challenges and issues you do; she is a woman who is almost 80 who has spent the last 28 years in Washington DC, ingratiating herself  within the “Washington Elite”, with little interest in and less time spent on the needs of her constituency!

Furthermore, as a voter, you should be asking that all important question,” How can someone who has spent her entire professional life working in government, have amassed a net worth in the millions of dollars?”

I was born in Long Island, NY to a blue collar, FDR Democrat working class family.  My father worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and when it closed, he was out of a job.  From that point forward, my dad took whatever job he could get.  His last job was as a cleaning man in a department store. My mother was an aide at the local school cafeteria.

Importantly, neither one of my parents ever voted Republican until Ronald Reagan in 1980.  They were lifelong Democrats.  It was Ronald Reagan (a former Democrat himself), that made them realize the Democratic Party no longer identified with America’s working class.  That reality has only worsened.  Maxine Waters actions have proven to be the problem, not the solution

My life may have had humble beginnings, but I was blessed with parents who recognized the importance of quality education. They worked and sacrificed to provide me access to quality-driven schools making it possible for me to graduate and build a successful career as a lawyer.

That’s why I am so committed to “school choice”, allowing parents to give their children that same educational opportunities I had. (Maxine Waters has voted against providing “school Choice” at every opportunity she could.)

I also recognize the importance of shrinking the size, scope and reach of government; reducing the federal deficits that threaten to rob our children of their futures and keeping taxes low to allow job growth.

The people of the 43rd District need someone dedicated to working for them … not against them, their families and/or their futures.

I’m Frank DeMartini and I am running for Congress against Maxine Waters.

The Swamp is Deep

This past week, I had the privilege of going to Washington D.C. for three days for my first time as an official candidate.  I attended many meetings and achieved some great results  Some of them cannot be discussed at this point, but some of them can and will be.

To begin with, I met with a number of Immigration Think Tanks and answered the questionnaire at Numbers USA.  I also had the privilege of meeting with Mark Krikorian who leads the Center for Immigration Studies.  I discussed my positions with both groups and listened very carefully to their thoughts on the issues.  If elected, I believe I will be able to work with both of them while keeping the interests of CA-43 at heart.

The same goes for Americans for Tax Reform.  I attended the regular Wednesday meeting and sat down after the meeting with Grover Norquist.  He is an extremely intelligent person and another man that I believe I will be able to work with in the future.  I also had the privilege of signing their Pledge.

On Wednesday, I also had a thirty minute conference with Michael Steele.  We discussed campaign ideas and went over some ideas that should aid my campaign as well.  I look forward to continuing working with Mr. Steele as the campaign moves on.

And, lastly I had the privilege of meeting with the head of the Freedom Caucus, Mark Meadows and with the Chief of Staff from Marsha Blackburn's office.  I requested both to endorse my campaign and, as of now, that is in the works.

I also had a few other meetings that I believe it is too soon to discuss, but will be mentioned in future updates.

However, the main reason for my writing now is that I have to comment about the depth of the swamp in DC.  I always believed it was bad and that President Trump was doing the right thing by wanting to drain it.

The truth is it is much deeper than I even imagined.  For example, I'm in the early stages of my first Congressional Campaign and I was solicited by more than 40 consultants, think tanks and lobbyists over the course of three days.  Every one of these people is either looking to make money off of my contributors or to already buy my influence.  I can just imagine what will happen when I defeat Maxine Waters.

In that vein, I pledge, when elected, to work only for my constituents best interests and not to get mired in the muck of Washington D.C.  I know I will be fighting an uphill battle, but that is what I will do.  I will not enrich myself on the backs of taxpayers.  My opponent, to the contrary, already has.

If you've already donated, thank you.  If you can give more, I will appreciate it.  If you haven't yet, please help me drain the swamp.
