Welcome

joe-andrade-photoWelcome! Joe Andrade is a Citizen Candidate running for US Congress in Utah’s ‘new’ District 2. I am an independent, unaffiliated candidate – no party; no hidden agendas. See my KUED Channel 7 video at: http://www.voteutah.org/candidates/us-house-2/joseph-andrade

Contact me at:    2012andrade@gmail.com  and                      801-706-6747

This campaign is targeted to adults – individuals who can deal with facts, realism, and practical approaches to issues and problems. I will not be seeking donations and will run few, if any, ads. I will be factual, honest, and transparent.

Thomas Paine said it best:     I offer nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments, and common sense.

My platform is based on:
       getting money out of politics – restore democracy;
       developing a truly sustainable, inclusive forward-oriented economy;
       providing accessible health care for all;
       providing accessible education for all.
The video on the right outlines my general platform and reasons for running.
