Your Beliefs "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." I truly believe in that statement, and hope to tell the story of some of those things. I believe in living a rational, level-headed life, and treating others with honesty and respect. I went into journalism in order that knowledge and lines of communication would be opened.
Politics I have a progressive-libertarian political bend, whatever that means. Basically, "Live and let live" with some necessary social systems in place. I am a registered Democrat, for the time being, but don't buy into either party's line. I base my politics solely on "realistic" cause and effect.
Religion: Raised Catholic, currently spiritually agnostic. Very interested in spirituality, but certainly non-religious.
Local Hot-Button Issues: The issues facing Santee right now are all based on expansion in some form or another. Las Colinas, suburban expansion, landfills, highways, population, you name it. The city is changing and the future is uncertain. What will Santee look like in 10 years? It's hard to say, but I'm going to try and figure it out.
