Cindy Redburn for County Council - District 6

 Pledge to You


.My Pledge


To represent the people of 6th district as a legislator is an honor and a serious responsibility. One that should never be taken lightly for the legislator has been charged with the trust of not only their district, but all citizens of St. Louis County, as they legislate.


As a candidate for St. Louis County Council I believe it is my duty to be transparent concerning my philosophy of governing. You have a right to know my beliefs concerning the role of government before you make your choice on Election Day.


I pledge to my constituents and the people of St. Louis County:


To honor and obey my oath of office to support the United States Constitution and the Constitution of Missouri.

I pledge to uphold the dictates for constitutional government found in Article 1,  Section 2 of the Missouri Constitution.* Therefore I will:


Support only legislation that benefits all St. Louis Countians

         

           I will not support legislation that takes from an individual or a group to benefit another individual or  group.


          I will support legislation that encourages personal responsibility,and encourages aid and support through the private

          sector as the first line of assistance to those in need.


Protect the rights of all to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the enjoyment of the gains of their

own industry.


         I will not support any legislation that impedes a person’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that exceeds

          the rightful role of government to maintain a safe and orderly society.


          I will not support any legislation that infringes on the natural rights of Missourians to enjoy the fruits of their labor

          through excessive taxation and regulation, or to bear the burden of irresponsible use of revenue by the government.


Ensure that all people have equal rights and equal opportunity under the law.


          I will not support any legislation that rewards or benefits special interest groups at the expense of other citizens or

          businesses.



 and I, further pledge:


Although the Missouri Constitution does allow for the acceptance  of money and gifts from lobbying organizations, I will refrain  from such activities, as my duty and sole interest is to protect my constituent's rights and liberties.

*The Missouri Constitution clearly defines the role of the government in Article 1, Section 2. “That all constitutional government is intended to promote the general welfare of the people; that all persons have a natural right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the enjoyment of the gains of their own industry; that all persons are created equal and are entitled to equal rights and opportunity under the law; that to give security to these things is the principal office of government, and that when government does not confer this security, it fails in its chief design”.
