Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives from CA 8th District

Presentation by Roger LaPlante, Candidate and Club member

Roger LaPlante, a Club member, is also a candidate for the 8th Congressional District. As Roger puts it, in this challenge against Tea Party member Paul Cook for his 8th District seat in the House of Representatives, “It’s time to bring back the “We the People” culture our nation was founded on. Our citizens have become disconnected from the original principle of citizen leaders. As your representative, I will work hard to get the corporations and lobbyist’s out of politics, and bring our country back to “We The People”. For more of his platform, see his website HERE. This is your opportunity to interact with the person who will be representing you in the House of Representatives next year!

Roger also volunteered to head up our Voter Registration effort in 2016, saying, “That is completely in line with my personal dedication to getting people to vote and become involved in making their communities better.”
