Radio Interview with KPRL 1230 AM: ( Interview starts at the min mark if you wish to skip the ads)
A healthy and prosperous society depends upon an ethical and efficient government. Today our citizens see that the cost of health care is significantly outpacing inflation. In addition , our infrastructure is crumbling while our national debt is spiraling out of control. We need to address all these issues without politically divided hang-ups standing in the way.
My name is Kenneth Young. Let's get this done. I am running for Congress as an Independent candidate to better represent the primary concerns we share in California's Central Coast 24th Congressional District.
My purpose is to assure that government works on our behalf to keep the national debt in check, maintain our environmental and energy resources, properly direct funds to needed street and highway repair, and free us to pursue a more active and prosperous life. These things are all feasible with intelligent research and planning. But we must first break the deadlock of our failing two party system. New leadership is called for.
Let's preserve our beautiful central coast for all to enjoy.
