Candidate for Chairman Raps on YouTube

True Democracy is Christopher DeCarlo's message in music.

Independent candidate Christopher DeCarlo, running for chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, posted a campaign video to YouTube on Sunday. 

DeCarlo announced his candidacy on October 24, 2011, with this statement.

"My name is Chris DeCarlo and I am a candidate for the office of Chairman.

This campaign is directed to True Democracy. A place that promotes personal freedom and self responsibility. A place where financial influence does not corrupt the administrative and legislative processes. A place where you and I can have more weighted influence in the process of our form of self-government.

As Chairman I will lead your County to this place where elected representatives are not obligated to provide financial and legislative paybacks in return for election support. A place without career politicians. A place with no campaign contributions, no roadside signs, no secret e-mail meetings.

It is a place with more efficient employees and lower taxes, more open and frank discussion and more open and responsive government. All of us know that True Democracy is out there. We just haven't been able to find it.

Together we can find it but you have to vote for the mission. A mission where we don't have anything more to lose and everything to gain. A mission that we know will succeed. A mission to set a new standard for elected service.
I am campaigning for the opportunity to prove that there is an alternative that is simple to implement. An alternative to the status-quo. An alternative that will produce positive results for all of us.

We need to move away from politics as usual and in this new direction of True Democracy to restore our trust in our government. A trust that all of us desire and support."

This is a creative reach of messaging, but for this member of the community, it would have resonated more in candidate support on Tuesday, November 8 if the video had been filmed in Fairfax County. The video is well done, but Mr. DeCarlo appears to be running for Congress with this rather than Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.
