09.13.17 - Guest Column From State Representative Keith Faber: Constitution Day--A Reminder Of Its Creation And Intentions

 

Two hundred and thirty years ago, the founding fathers of this country took the steps to form a more perfect union. On September 17, 1787, the United State Constitution was signed by 39 out of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention. Soon after our war for independence from Great Britain was won in 1783, the founders determined that the original constitution, the Articles of Confederation, were too weak to support a new nation. And thus, the Constitution was born.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America…” We’re all familiar with this phrase, it has been ingrained in our existence as Americans since the first days of elementary school.

As public servants of this great nation, our loyalty to “Old Glory” is of the utmost importance; we must uphold the values it represents.

03.31.17 - Guest Column From State Representative Keith Faber: Passage Of House Bill 51 Would Result In More Accountable Government

 

In the private sector, companies that refuse to face the realities of the changing market go out of business. Competition breeds innovation. Historically, government has had the luxury of not worrying about competition. So naturally, they have not felt the pressure to innovate, cut costs, and return money to the people and instead simply opt to maintain the status quo. As Ronald Reagan once quipped, “’Status quo’ is Latin for the ‘mess we’re in.’” Today, taxpayers deserve and are demanding better.

02.17.17 - Guest Column From State Representative Keith Faber: Honoring All Of Our Presidents, The Popular And The More Unknown

 

February seems to have a penchant for producing great presidents. February 22 was the birthday of our first president, George Washington, the father of our country. February 12 was the birthday of the man who saved the union, Abraham Lincoln. Last, but certainly not least, February 6 was the birthday of the greatest president of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan. With a lineup like this, it is no surprise that we dedicate a day in February to remember all of those 45 men who served their country as its president. But Presidents’ Day also affords us the opportunity to remember some presidents who do not get the credit they deserve for all they did for our nation.
