Captain Art Halvorson (USCG, Ret.) is a highly decorated Coast Guard veteran, businessman, and conservative champion of traditional values. He is running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 9th district on a platform of liberty, fiscal restraint, military strength and traditional pro-life social values.

But Art is not your typical Republican. He stands in opposition to the cartel of lobbyists, donors and career politicians that wield such destructive influence in Washington. He sees eliminating cronyism, corruption and influence peddling in the federal government as a moral obligation.

Rather than calling for heavy-handed federal restrictions on campaign finance and free speech, Art believes the best way to restore integrity to Congress is through mandatory term limits. He is a staunch advocate of the citizen-legislator model envisioned by our country's founders. Once elected, Art will serve three terms in Congress, and not a day more. He will also refuse the congressional pension and other needless perks that breed complacency and opportunism in Washington.

Over more than 30 years, Art served as a search-and-rescue pilot, a base commanding officer, and ultimately as one of the nation's top military officials in charge of re-organizing US maritime security after the 9-11 attacks, earning him the prestigious Legion of Merit award. He was also part of the senior military advisory team that helped stand up the Dept. of Homeland Security. His experience securing U.S. borders against drug smugglers, human traffickers, illegal immigration and terrorism is urgently needed in Congress.

Art believes U.S. foreign policy and trade policy must always be conducted to advance interests of our own country. Power must be projected wisely and unequivocally to defend those interests, while avoiding intervention that creates instability and blowback in tumultuous parts of the world. Groups like ISIS that threaten us must be extinguished swiftly and completely. That requires overwhelming force; a smart, nimble and responsive military structure; and a well-resourced diplomatic corps focusing our best minds on geostrategic problems.

After more than four decades of dynasty politics, Art Halvorson offers a fresh start for central Pennsylvania. He's a leader we can count on.
