Mayor Tom McMasters an independent candidate for Congress

As an independent (non-party) candidate for Ohio's 10th Congressional District, I am free to choose the best ideas of all the political parties.  I openly engage on issues so we can develop the best policies to strengthen our neighborhoods and the Miami Valley.  

By electing a middle class family man, who pays for his campaign himself, you will send a message way beyond the Miami Valley that we are ready for responsible government. 
Casting a vote for Tom McMasters does more than elect an independent, it makes a statement that we will do the hard work it takes to move this country forward and improve our standard of living. 

As your representative I will work to:

Make sure Congress does its Job
- Does it bother you when you hear the Fed might raises interest rates because people are starting to get a little more in their paychecks?  You've heard it!  Your politicians tell you they want people to get good paying jobs but then they set up a system where they give the Federal Reserve a mandate to prevent you from getting a raise.  When the Fed raises interest rates it lowers salaries for the working class while encouraging higher pay for top executives.  It also prevents new
start up entrepreneurial business from getting loans, forcing them to sell out to large companies on the cheap.  If the country needs to slow the economy, what is a better way? Structure the tax code so that the money causing inflation comes out of circulation and then goes to paying off the national debt.   When Congress does its job we can have a productive economy without suppressing the wages of those of us that work and without forcing small businesses out of the market place. Make Congress do its job! (extended article)
Strengthen our Military - We would get 20% more force power with 10% less money if we trained military leaders to return unneeded funds to the taxpayer.  Every acquisition program I've know has planned in an extra 30% into their budget just in case something goes wrong.  Every operational unit is budgeted 5% more than they need to stay strong.  Every military leader is trained that to return that money to the taxpayer is a sin.  This leads to Generals and Colonels wasting 25% of their programs funds up front and then having to come back and ask the taxpayer for another 10% to finish the project.

Support for Wright-Patterson AFB by demanding fiscal responsibility and exceptional performance.  In an attempt to save $40 million dollars base leadership decided to hire technicians and substitute teachers to replace Aerospace Engineers and Senior Program Managers.  This led to over $800 million dollars in program delays and cost overruns.  This is typical of the financial decisions made and despite attempts to sell mismanagement as a positive, hinders our performance and destroys our reputation.
Rein in Political Professionals - Congress is gridlocked because there are too many people that depend on campaign funds in order to make their living. 
Its no secret that the "best" professional campaign managers and advertising firms work for the candidates best able to pay their salaries.  There is no loyalty to candidates or philosophy.  They stay employed based on how much money they can get people to donate to their candidate.  The easiest way to get people to donate is to get them riled up and angry.  Stop the gridlock by insisting on civil conversation backed up by facts and reason.  Hold onto your money and tell your neighbor to do the same.

Promote fiscal responsibility and family values - I believe the workers and businesses in this country are productive enough that we should be striving for households that live comfortably on single earner incomes;  a workforce that doesn't depend on maternity and paternity leave so children get six weeks with a birth parent, but instead, one where one job pays enough to raise a family so that one parent can always be home, providing guidance to their child, while preparing for their next job.  Making it possible, so that at a later time, they can become the primary income earner while the other parent remains at home to raise the children and acquire additional skills to improve on the next paid position they take.

By telling you about this website, your neighbor demonstrated they know what it takes to strengthen our neighborhoods, the Miami 
Valley and our country.  Please validate their efforts by supporting my bid to become an independent candidate for the United States House of Representative in the 10th Congressional district.

I have never taken a monetary campaign contribution and if elected next November, I never will.  But I will need your help to achieve our goals for this country.  To start, I'm not rich, help me maximize my advertising dollars.  Remember Tom McMasters is an independent candidate that will work for your in Congress. Share what you know with your neighbors and friends during discussions, personal conversations, on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.  Discuss with your neighbors all the good that will come if we mitigate the influence of professional campaigners by electing an independent candidate to congress.
Thank you for your support and for your help in getting my name on the ballot.  Now it is time to publicize my campaign and to make sure we get value for our tax dollars.    Volunteer
