Why you should support Frank DeMartini

I’m thinking about running for Congress against Maxine Waters.  Here why:

Maxine Waters has been in Congress way too long.  She is out of touch with her constituency and has become a typical Washington elite, corrupt politician. She just no longer cares about the people she represents.  She only cares about herself.  Her tenure has been full of scandals and self-enrichment.  It’s time for change.

I am the person to take her on and represent the people of California’s 43rd Congressional District.  I share the values of the people in the district.  It’s all about the working man and woman.  I am a working man trying to make ends meet.  I care about the single mother or father trying to make ends meet.  I have that history.  I care about the un-employed who would like nothing more than to find a job and support the family.  I care about education for our children.  Maxine Waters does not.

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.  He eventually was lucky and was hired to help build the Lunar Modules for Grumman Aerospace.  That job lasted until the Apollo program was defunded.  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 mom raised three children and was forced to work part time to help support the family.  She was an aide at the local school cafeteria.

Both of my parents did what they could to give me the opportunity to go to college and achieve my dreams; something neither my brother or sister ever had.  Importantly, neither one ever voted Republican until Ronald Reagan in 1980.  They were live long Democrats.  At that point, they realized the Democratic Party no longer thought of the working class.  It had become the party of big business, banks, Wall Street and the educated elite.  That has only worsened.  Maxine Waters exemplifies the problem, not the solution.

After graduation from Syracuse University and Touro College School of Law, I moved to Los Angeles in 1986.  I have been here ever since.  Southern California is my home.  I started practicing law and later became a film producer.  Luckily, I achieved my dreams as my parents wished.  Unfortunately, neither lived to see it.  However, my brother and sister are very proud of me and support me in this new venture.

Now, I want to give some of what I achieved back to the public.  That public is in CA-43.  I am beholden to no one except the people I will represent.  The constituents of that district are hard working people who want to give their kids a better life.  They want their kids to be educated and to have good careers.  The same as I do.  Unfortunately, the current economy in the United States and the current Congress is not making that easy.  I want to help.  My goal is to bring jobs and happiness to the people in the district.

Maxine Waters has forgotten her background.  She lives in a multi-million dollar mansion in Hancock Park.  She represents Insurance Companies and Real Estate Companies.  Her social positions are far to the left.  She doesn’t even know the dreams of the people in her district.  She is out of touch.  She is Washington, plain and simple.

I’m still that same kid from suburban New York.  I work for a living and it is tough.  I currently live with my wife of three years in a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles.  I remember my background and still deal with it on a day-to-day basis.

We need a change from Maxine Waters’ out of touch politics and I am the one to bring it.
