Letter to Steve "it's about the money" Rose

Hey Steve, sorry to hear about your issue with Crohn's. Your article dated Sept. 30 understates what it takes to run for Congress. Your analysis is far too short in stating there are only basically three factors:

1. 75% of the time is raising funds

2. It's a full job, and then some.

3. [A candidate] needs to raise $700,000 to win the GOP primary.

Running for Congress is not about money Mr. Rose. Most of my time is spent communicating with many people trying to determine what the consensus of the voters and non-voters want from their elected representative in Washington.

Restating, it has never been about the money. It is about studying the issues and having solutions to problems those in the 3rd Congressional District want and expect from their elected official. As well as communicating that message to the electors sufficient to warrant their vote in both the primary and general election.

In closing, running for Congress is serious business. Maybe during your nine-day campaign, you began to understand and realize that as the 3rd District rep, your vote may make a huge difference in people's lives. I get it Steve. And maybe finally, you are starting to.

Tom Scherer, the better candidate for your U.S. Congress,

Anyone that would like to post solutions to make America a better nation as a guest blog author; or has solutions to fix some of the problems in America, send me an essay to Also known as Thomas E. Scherer, your better candidate for United States Congress

Merely remember if I am elected to Congress, you the individual are my boss. PACS, Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups, sorry, but just go away. Americans are tired of the United PACS of America buying and corrupting our congressman and Senators. Our candidate is not for sale.
