John B. Bloom (I), running for Virginia Senate in the 1st District
1. Why are you running for office?
I am fed up with the two major BIG Government Un constitutional Political Parties that are as CORRUPT and Dishonest as their respective Nominees for President, Hillary Clinton (Dems) and Donald Trump (Reps). My opponents will NOT represent the voters of the 1st Senate District but will represent their Respective Partyies. I am also the State Coordinator for the Constitution Party and will be promoting a write in campaign for Darrell Castle President and Scott Bradley the CP Nominees.
2. Why should people vote for you?
I will base my decisions not on Party Politics but what is in the Interest of the voters in my District and balance that with a Constitutional check on legislation both the US Constitution and the Virginia Constitution. Neither the Republican or Democrat Party Candidate will ever do that.
3. What’s your favorite thing about the area you want to represent?
As a former US Naval Officer and as far as I know the only Veteran I value the people that work to support our National Defense, both Military and Civilian.
4. What is the biggest problem your area is facing, how will you fix it?
Transportation to and from Norfolk, we need to build another set of Tunnels and finance the project using REVENUE bonds and start charging tolls for those who use the tunnels.
5. Describe Donald Trump in max 3 words?
Liberal Pathological Liar
6. Describe Hillary Clinton in max 3 words?
National Security Risk
7. What do you do for a living? Why do you do it?
I am an Unemployed Nuclear Engineer who previously supported the Construction of the the Ford Class Carriers. I was laid off by Newport News Shipbuilding as they hired Entry Level Engineers older workers trained them and we charged both of our labor to the Ford Contract which was a cost plus contract and that increased the cost of construction for the Ford, then they laid the more costly and experienced workers such as myself off as the John F. Kennedy Contract was a FIXED Cost Contract . I am working as a Seasonal Employee for Busch Gardens Williamsburg as a Train Conductor earn some money as my Unemployment Insurance expired the 1st week in April.
8. You’re going to be marooned on a tropical island for a week, you can only bring 1 thing – what is it?
9. What do you think of Colin Kaepernick?
He has a right to protest and I believe ALL Lives Matter and understand that many Blacks have not been treated fairly.
10. Would you vote to fund light rail expansion in your area?
No, this is a LOCAL issue, why should voters in the 1st Senate District be taxed to fund light rail projects in Virginia Beach or Northern Virginia. Tax dollars should NEVER leave the local area. We are overtaxed and the bureaucracy absorbs the money that can be used to actually solve the problem locally.
11. Will you respect the outcome of the election?
Yes, I lost a Primary Election in NY State when I ran against George Tsunis, in a Conservative Party Primary, when he was a Republican, he was the Nominee appointed by President Obama to be the Ambassador to Norway, I lost to him by ONE vote! Though he sent a mailer out the Monday before the election that was designed to confuse voters and make them believe he was me. I found out the political mailings are protected by the 1st Amendment and they can lie. I accepted the loss and moved on, I didn’t like it, but the election is final. Also, why are people focused on Voter Fraud when Republicans carved out districts that guarantee a Republican or Democrat wins a certain seat? In 2014 the Republicans won EIGHT Congressional Districts and the Democrats three CDs all eleven races where by Landslides.
12. Favorite TV Show?
“Have Gun Will Travel!” Current show is “NCIS.”
