Honor Mimi Robson on "Breaking the Barrier."
Honor Mimi Robson says: "California is run by career politicians who are not motivated by the needs of the people they represent, but rather are motivated by special interest groups that fund their campaigns. Our current State Senator has proven time and again that he is not representing me, my family, friends, and neighbors.
"I didn't ask our legislature to give the power to regulate our state's business over to non-elected heads of agencies. I didn't ask them to fund frivolous projects while the state's infrastructure is crumbling. I didn't ask them to take away our rights, with the swipe of a pen.
"I hadn't considered running for office, but I received a call from the California Libertarian Party Chair informing me that my current State Senator was running unopposed. I realized it was time to take action with a write-in campaign for the 33rd State Senate District seat -- and I indeed qualified for the general election in November.
"Running against the incumbent Senator is an uphill battle, but with your help, I am ready and willing to take this on. I want to go to Sacramento and hold our elected representatives, including myself, accountable to you."
