WILL HIS OPPONENTS?
(Friendswood, Texas) – Libertarian, U.S. House candidate for District 22, signed the “Punch Clock Agreement,” a contract promising District 22 voters that, when elected, he will publish his daily official work schedule on the Internet, including the names of everyone he meets with and the events he attends.
Most working citizens report to their bosses on how they spend their day, and the “Punch Clock Agreement“ similarly holds members of Congress responsible while on the public payroll to report their official activities and associations to their bosses, the citizens who elect them.
With this announcement, Smither is issuing a challenge to his opponents, Democrat Nick Lampson and Republican write in Shelley Sekula-Gibbs, to join him in signing the Agreement, which is available at the Sunlight Network. So far, 34 candidates in the November election have signed the Agreement.
“The more transparent the governing process is, the better,” said Smither. “I promise to work for the voters, not the special interests. This agreement will allow my constituents to see exactly how I spend my day—who I meet with and how I am representing their interests.”
Bob Smither is the only conservative candidate on the ballot in the District 22 race in November. He will represent constituents in restoring government to the wisdom and bounds of the Constitution. He will be an independent voice for the people of District 22, with no ties to special interests.
