I’m Sunita Singh and I’m running as an Independent Candidate for U.S. Senate for North Carolina in November 2020.
If you’ve been paying attention to politics lately, you know that our two-party system is not working; not at the state level nor at the federal level. Did you see the power play and legislative shenanigans by the Republicans in North Carolina’s General Assembly with the veto override vote on the state budget? Or the impeachment hearings in Washington? How can the two parties be so divided on the same set of facts? It’s time for voters to vote for leaders who will stop with the gerrymandering, corruption, and hyper partisan politics. It’s time to restore decency, integrity, civility and respect for the rule of law in our politics.
I’m running as an Independent because Voters need more choices. Without competition, Republicans and Democrats would be unwilling to do better and constituents needs would continue to take a back seat. Instead of doing what's right for the American people, Republicans and Democrats are engaged, every single day, in revenge politics.
Meanwhile, the federal government is on an irresponsible and unsustainable fiscal path, burdening our children and future generations with a $23,000,000,000,000 debt which keeps rising even in the best of economic times. When the next recession hits, this exploding debt will damage the economy, undermine our standard of living, and leave our children and future generations worse off than we are; which is why I’ve made the choice to stand up, speak out and fight for our future.
The federal gov’t is borrowing at least forty cents of every dollar it spends and yet politicians are making campaign promises to provide free health care and free college tuition for all Americans without being honest about how they’re going to pay for it. No wonder when they get to Washington, they can’t deliver on those promises and get anything done! Social Security and Medicare Funds are already paying out more money than they’re taking in but no one running for office is talking about that fact! Free healthcare may be a good soundbite while on the campaign trail but as you all know; money does not fall from the sky.
I am not a career politician but I’d like to be the U.S. Senator for North Carolina to use my skill set to help manage our high and rising national debt that the career politicians racked up. I am an Immigrant and like so many Americans, I worked my way into the middle class. At this stage in life, I’m concerned about the legacy I leave for my grandchildren and it breaks my heart knowing that the current debt the federal gov’t would have to take 79% of every American’s wage for a whole year as tax revenue!
During his inaugural speech on Jan. 20, 1961 President John F. Kennedy uttered this challenge, “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” I accept that challenge.
As an Independent, I would be willing to confront the challenges facing us regardless of whether my constituents are in “red” or “blue” districts. I am committed to looking at the facts, and partnering with both Democrats and Republicans to address critical educational, environmental, infrastructure and social service needs in our state. I promise to work on policies and legislation based on what’s right for our country, not party affiliation.
To qualify to run as an unaffiliated candidate, I need 71,545 Registered NC Voter Signatures to get on the ballot. This is no small feat which is why I’m seeking your assistance immediately.
Please join me in my quest to restore integrity to politics, do what’s right for North Carolinians, and leave future generations an America that is fiscally sound. Can I count on you to do this?
Kindly download my N.C .State Board of Elections Petition Form and help me gather as many signatures as possible.
Signatures must be collected on separate sheets for each county. Do not combine voter signatures from multiple counties on one sheet. No one may sign for another person.
Please mail signed petitions to: Sunita Singh for U.S. Senate, 92 Cornerstone Drive – Ste.324, Cary NC 27519. All signatures should be in ink and must be original (not digital). This is how difficult they make it for Independent candidates to run for office.
Thanks in advance.
