---- — My name is Ihor Procyk, and I am announcing my intentions to run for Congress in the New York 19th Congressional District, which includes both my current home in Kingston, Ulster County, as well as Oneonta and Otsego County.
As I am thoroughly disgusted with the present two-party system, and the control that big-money interests have over it, I founded the Clean Sweep Reform Party in 2010. The name is my starting point. I am convinced that we cannot do worse than what we have in the Congress at this time, but that, indeed, we can do much better with a turn to a constituent-centered, sleek and honest government. My stand is for Liberty: the right to conduct our lives as we see fit, without oppressive government intrusion; for Opportunity: to guarantee every person equal access to the chance to improve their lives, and, most importantly, for Truth: speaking the truth, and dealing honestly and fairly in our political structures, and our society.
Because I have an unwavering faith in the excellence of the human spirit, and although I understand it is a tall order, I believe we can set our minds and hearts to a better and exciting future. Indeed, we can return to the high ideals that this country was founded on. I ask for your support, and your prayers, as I seek to be part of this very important turn for our future.
