Citizen, entrepreneur, advocate for equal treatment for all


Samm Tittle’s political philosophy can be summed up in one short phrase: “Equal Treatment For All, Because No One Is Above The Law.” This uniquely American notion is the common thread in all of Tittle’s policy positions. For this daughter of immigrants who grew up in a working class family in El Paso, Texas and who worked extremely hard to achieve the American Dream, making sure that everyone has a fair shot to succeed is very important.

Dividing her time between El Paso and Albuquerque, where she worked for her grandparents, brought Tittle into contact with people of many cultures, many of whom were immigrants trying to make their way in the United States and become loyal and productive American citizens. Tittle gained a great appreciation for these hard working immigrants and came to understand that most immigrants come to America not to take from it, but to give back to it.

Through hard work, Tittle became a successful entrepreneur and came to understand that if government was run like a well-oiled business the country and the economy would be in a much better place. For Tittle, jobs are the most important thing because with no job there is no freedom. When an individual has a job they are contributing members of society and many of the problems the country faces are solved.

Tittle is a strong advocate for fairness, equality, transparency and the rule of law. These are thing things she is passionate about. She is a firm believer that no one is above the law, and that we are all in the same boat. Her campaign will be centered on the promise to hold the government accountable for its actions and restore the trust between the American people and their government

The Real Grandmaster Jay


John Fitzgerald Johnson was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He shares little in the way of his academic history, but he speaks briefly of previous jobs he has held. He is a veteran (of which branch of the armed services is not known), an ordained minister, and an IT Architect. He is also a recording artist, and as founder of the GMJ International Entertainment multimedia company, has produced music for a variety of companies large and small under the stage name “The Real Grandmaster Jay”. He campaigns under the slogan “Only we can fix us”.

Johnson is an ardent civil rights activist who is extremely concerned with racial inequality. He is particularly focused on the issue of police brutality, and is a member of the Black Lives Matter movement. He calls for a mandate that all law enforcement officers be required to wear a body camera capturing footage that cannot be altered or deleted. He also wishes to establish a Federal Special Prosecutor division specifically for the review of all incidents of deadly force used by police, with officers found to have behaved improperly having their cases automatically escalated to federal crimes. Mandatory annual training of law enforcement in deescalation of force, as well as civilian review boards with oversight power over police, are other ideas he champions.

Beyond civil rights, Johnson has permissive views on immigration. While he supports tightening border security to prevent illegal crossings, he emphatically declares that he will not build a wall. He rejects any notion of deporting illegal immigrants currently present in the country (with the exception of criminals wanted in their original nation, whom he says could be welcomed back after being sent home), instead seeking to grant them legal status so that they could work for taxable income. He is an advocate of guest workers' rights, supporting legal representation for such people who may have been abused by their employers, as well as requiring those employers to provide reimbursement for housing, transportation expenses, and workers' compensation.

Johnson supports woman's rights, as well. He wishes to expand funding for Planned Parenthood, provide guaranteed childcare for all Americans, and require employers to provide at least one week of paid leave for mothers whose children fall ill. On the issue of labor generally, he supports twelve weeks of paid family and medical leave for all workers, two weeks of paid vacation, and a minimum wage increase to $18 per hour.

With his decidedly left-of-center political bent, Johnson is likely to find supporters among social liberals, especially those concerned with racial issues. Fiscal liberals would also find little to object to in his platform. Political conservatives are not likely to agree with most of his positions.

Johnson is nothing if not optimistic. On his campaign website, he makes a veiled reference to the accomplishment of President Barack Obama, the first black man to achieve the Oval Office. Johnson displays a picture of himself – also an African-American man – on which he has written the phrase, “Who says lightning doesn't strike twice?”
