Click on the following link for contact information for
Citizens For A Better America ®, has three levels of
involvement which the candidate can pick between. Mr.
Mendham has chosen to participate in our Basic
Endorsement Program .
HOW DID WE CONTACT THE CANDIDATES!
Citizens For A Better America ®, attempted to
contact by telephone the six (6) Republican Candidates
and the one (1) Democrat Candidate running for this
race. Five (5) candidates gave us their e-mail
addresses. One candidate responded by writing us and
telling us he will not respond to our Candidate
Questionnaire. One candidate, Robert W. Mendham,
completed and returned our Candidate Questionnaire.
Which we evaluated for the potential of endorsement.
THE KIND OF CANDIDATES WE ENDORSE!
Citizens For A Better America ® has a tough
endorsement evaluation process. If you visit our
Internet Website at http://www.GoodGuysList.org you
will see that it is a challenge to find morality and
values based candidates we can endorse who are Pro
America first, Pro traditional family, Pro life, Pro
2nd Amendment, Pro USA sovereignty, Pro constitutional
candidates from the very lowest to the very highest
positions all over the United States of America.
Not everyone who completes a candidate questionnaire
qualifies for the next step in the endorsement process.
"We recognize that in this day of a massive sell out of
our Nation's sovereignty and the interests of the
American people by so many, it is a rare privilege to
be able to endorse the above candidate(s) for public
office and to proudly put them on Citizens For A Better
America's, "Good Guys List" ," said Robert Colaco,
National Chairman of Citizens For A Better
"Why have these individual(s) been qualified to appear
on your "Good Guys List" ?", asked one radio show
host of Robert Colaco. "We ask very hard hitting
written questions that test not only a candidate's
political positions but also their knowledge of the
political process. Our goal is to discover their core
beliefs, and we believe our questions do that. If they
pass the questionnaire, we then ask them to fill out
our Background Check Form . They are also asked to
sign off that we can say the things that we have said
about them in this News Release announcing our
endorsement of their candidacy. They sign all three
documents under the penalties of perjury. Only after
all this do we consider them to be endorsable
by us," said Colaco.
Mr. Colaco went on to say, "Let me give you an example
- a candidate said to me. 'I was just answering all
the questions and checking off the questions, then I
got to question #18 and I really had to think. I had to
go back and review each of my answers, this
questionnaire really gets to the heart of things, of
what was I willing to compromise on.'"
"In addition we ask the candidates to sign, 'Under
penalties of perjury," said Colaco. Regarding the
penalty of perjury line our Honorary National Chairman
Congressman Bill Dannemeyer said, "You sure haven't
left them any wiggle room have you Robert?". "I said
that was my goal Bill, and he said you have
accomplished it," said Colaco.
"It is a rare and special candidate that qualifies for
our endorsement. So, we proudly give our endorsement
to each candidate on our "Good Guys List" . If you
can vote we enthusiastically encourage you to vote for
them. In addition we want to encourage you to do all
you can do to get these men and women elected to the
offices they are running for," said Colaco.
"We at Citizens For A Better America ® are thrilled
to announce the endorsement of Robert W. Mendham in the
great state of Michigan. While the Michigan State
Senate is expelling one of their own and U.S. Senator
Jim Jeffords is quitting as a Republican Senator giving
the Democrats control over the U.S. Senate," said
Colaco. "It is with great enthusiasm that we can
encourage the people in Michigan to vote for Robert W.
Mendham he is a candidate the people can count to be a
man of morality and values and one who will not change
in his core beliefs not even to gain more political
power or influence. He will be a great asset as a
legislator, we encourage you to vote for him as well as
help him get elected," said Colaco.
WHAT HAS BEEN TAKING PLACE IN MICHIGAN AND AMERICA.
"We as an organization have been criticized for being
too picky. This criticism has come mostly from
candidates that do not receive our endorsement. We
have seen however how critical it is in these last
couple of days to continually be vigilant to find
statesmen and women that we as a nation truly can count
on both personally and politically," said Colaco.
Michigan is reeling for its own morality issues.
In an 05/24/01 Associated Press article entitled,
"Senate votes to expel Sen. David Jaye," By Kathy
Barks Hoffman she states: "The state Senate voted
Thursday to expel Sen. David Jaye, capping a turbulent
six weeks that began with accusations Jaye had struck
his fiancee and ended with his insistence he was being
railroaded for his unpopular political views. At least
26 votes in the 38-member Senate were needed to force
out Jaye, who became the first Michigan senator ever
expelled. The resolution to remove him passed 33-2."
"Cases like this are just one reason we have an
extensive background questionnaire. Folks have lost
confidence in their elected officials and we want to
help restore that confidence," Colaco said.
The Nation is its self reeling from this new grab for
power in the U.S. Senate.
A Time.Com article published on May 24 entitled: "The
Jeffords Defection: The Domino Effect" by Jessica
Reaves tells us: "A moderate with a reputation for
standing apart from an increasingly conservative
Republican power structure, Jeffords has long defined
himself as a renegade. He was the sole Republican
opponent of President Reagan's 1981 tax cut, and defied
party lines by voting against Supreme Court nominee
Clarence Thomas. Jeffords also opposed the impeachment
of President Clinton, a decision he has characterized
as personally excruciating but ultimately right."
Colaco said, "It is clear that Jeffords had many
chances in the past to change parties but none offered
the type of opportunity for power that existed at this
time. It is clear to most of the general public that
this was not about principals but about power and
influence, just the thing that makes most of the
general public disgusted with voting these days. That
is why we have such a tough candidate questionnaire and
endorsement process. Our goal is to get to the
candidates core belief and to what they will and will
not compromise on."
