Dave Glissmeyer is a candidate for Utah’s 2nd Congressional District (which is currently being held by Jim Matheson), but don’t call him a “POLITICIAN“.
A representative from Legalize Utah was contacted by Dave this evening and was informed that he is a regular, middle class, working guy, and not to be considered a stereotypical “politician”. The representative from Legalize Utah agreed not to refer to Dave as a politician, rather, as “The Dude” when writing about his campaign.
Therefore, for the remainder of the 2010 campaign, Legalize Utah with refer to Dave Glissmeyer not as a politician, but rather as just “the Dude”.
“The Dude” was sent a request for his personal opinion regarding medical marijuana, as we all other candidates as well as current office holders.
Rather than just spouting off some typical rhetoric or responding in a demeaning or spiteful manner, “The Dude” suggested sitting down with members of Legalize Utah for a meeting and actually discussing the particulars of medical marijuana, including the LIVESTREAM 2010 marijuana survey, sponsored by Legalize Utah.
The campaign platform for “The Dude” is running on includes:
- Campaign reform
- Ethics Reform
- Reform for people receiving government benefits, ensuring they have more responsibility and opportunity to perform “meaningful work”
- Health Care Reform
- Medical litigation reform to reduce health care costs
- Immigration Reform
- Exploring a “Flat Tax”
- Feature the use of natural gas as a “bridge fuel”
- Propose and support legislation to impose term limits
- Advocate and endorse conservative spending policies
- Bring the “two wars of terror” to an orderly and rapid end
- Ensure that the United States can deal from a position of both strength and respect
- Kill the existing laws that allow for the party in majority to gerrymander election precincts
- Responsible resource management
- Personal freedom and liberty
- Open the debate as to the success of the “War on Drugs”
- Propose varied type of voluntary or incentive public service
Legalize Utah will schedule a meeting with “The Dude” in the near future to discuss the future of medical marijuana in Utah and discover if “The Dude” will indeed be a supporter of the medical marijuana movement.
