Thomas “Sick of D.C.” Casson Files For U.S. House of Representatives, Congressional District 3
Opelika, AL– Today, Thomas Sick of D.C Casson of Opelika, AL, officially filed his candidacy for U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 3.
Thomas is the father of 6 who believes so strongly in political reform that he changed his legal name to Thomas Sick of D.C. Casson. He qualifies as the only candidate in the United States on the platform of true reform of the United States House of Representatives. Thomas is the business owner of SickofDC.com, a consultant, and home educator of his children. The Casson family are members of Lakeview Baptist Church in Auburn, AL. Thomas and his wife served as foster parents for over a decade and adopted 6 children. Thomas attended Auburn University from 1989-1992 and graduated with a degree in psychology.
Thomas’ passion for reform began after serving 3 years on a Congressional staff in the late 1990’s. It was there that he saw first hand how those insiders had disdain for the voters they served.
Casson ran for this office under his given birth name in 2014 and garnered nearly 25% of the vote. “I need everyone that voted for change last time to convince one or more people that D.C. is broken and they are Sick of it. The people can win!”
$23 trillion dollars in debt is proof that the status quo of D.C. insiders continues to fail the people of this country.
Thomas believes innovative ideas are the key to truly changing how the government works, including the use of technology (Skype, video conferencing, secure voting, etc) to allow members more time away from D.C. so that they can stay connected with voters in a more meaningful way.
“Ten terms is Congress is insanity! Folks wonder why the Swamp is the Swamp – it is because career politicians don’t understand the very idea of government service. One should serve a maximum of 12 years and come home. Voting should never be a career!”
“Having lived in the 3rd Congressional District for over 35 years of my life, I would be honored to bring our values and common sense to DC. There is a desperate need new thinking and new leadership.”
