political windsock I’m not

[This is a note I wrote September 26 while my website was offline. In the interest of openness and transparency, I'm posting it now.]

I am not a political windsock following the winds of whim. New information changes minds. There’s been too many times in history that demonstrate the majority opinion can and does change.

So, whether it’s 5 or 5,000 people petitioning me, I test the idea against my vision, principles, and values — that’s more important to me than winning or losing votes. I’m here to consider the information available to me and act in the best interests of the community, not myself. Doing what the majority of emails or loudest voices command would be selfish if I truly believe it’s not the best choice.
