The Veterans In Politics International has video recorded their interviews for the primary and general election of all the candidates that made time and effort to be interviewed by our group.

 

The candidates that attended are willing to meet the challenge of an interview in a bipartisan effort to reach out to the veteran community and the community as a whole.

 

We hope that these interviews will be helpful in the Primary and General Election by placing people in office that are knowledgeable, ethical, experienced, write laws that will benefit all people, able to put childish differences aside and do what’s best for their constituents, put others before themselves, take the oath of office seriously, apply the true meaning of “public servant” and have a vision on resolving the problems that are facing our country and state.
