In 1998, Chris Lewis ran for Wicomico County Council (District 1) after graduating from Salisbury University. instead of choosing a party, he stayed true to his roots and ran as unaffiliated. In order to do so, he had to collect signatures to even be able to get on the ballot. Defying the odds, he was able to collect more than enough signatures and got his name on the ballot. he ran against Ed Taylor that year. Unfortunately, he lost. However, valuable lessons were learned.
In 2009, Chris helped to organize the first Tea Party here in Salisbury, Maryland. That first Tea party was the first taste of politics for many here on the Eastern Shore. The power of the Tea Party was that it was made up of regular Americans who helped build this society and who help bring prosperity to Maryland and the country. Grassroots is just not a term pundits use, and yet, it is much more than just a movement. A Grassroots campaign is how he plans on winning, while keeping costs down. Chris Lewis believes in the revitalization of America, and where better to start than on the Wicomico County Council here on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland.
Once again, Chris Lewis, is running for Wicomico County Council. This time he is running At Large as a Conservative Republican. The main reason he is not running as unaffiliated is time restraints. However, he remains a staunch conservative who believes in representation, not the establishment. He believes in principle over party.
How many people can say their lives are better now than they were 4 years ago? How much of that has to do with the federal government and how much has to do with local government? Will voting the same people in change things for the better? Have things like the local economy, government spending, and crime gotten worse while these elected officials have been in office?
It is time for government to once again represent the people, not pander to them for the sole purpose of getting votes.
