Sam Granato for US Senator?

Posted by italco on August 16, 2010

I was able to catch up with Utah Democrat Senate Candidate, Sam Granato at the Centro Civico Mexicano in Salt lake City. Leaning against the back wall of the autotorium, I asked Sam 3 basic questions…

1) Where do you stand on Immigration reform?

Sam told me he has had the pleasure of working directly with the hispanic community here in utah and supports their efforts towards finding a viable solution to the issue. He does not agree 100% with the Whitehouse approach to throw $600 million at the problem and expect more  “policing”  to work. He is willing to work within both parties Dem/Rep as a moderate thinker to develope solutions that take into consideration the concerns of the undocumented immigrant as well as the citizen of Utah who send him to washington to represent their concerns. He is for working towards a comprehensive reform package that “does not” include putting undocumeted immigrants in box cars and shipping them back to their perspective countries.

2) His thoughts on Ethics in Washington?

He looked me in the eye and said…”it’s broken and needs to be fixed”. Greed is the root of corruption and just like in business, ethics have to practiced in order to bring credibity to the office. Ethics isn’t something we just talk about, it is a life style. He assured me that he has always followed ethical business practices throughout his business life and would “not” be swayed by the $ of corporate lobbyists. He will represent Utah citizens, not industry.

He did clarify that industry is needed to create jobs but not at the expense of the environment or un-ethical business practices. We just need to eliminate the conflict of interest when governing WallStreet.

3) How he was going to bridge the divide between the liberals and conservative so Washington can start working together to get things done? 

He told me it is not his intent to go to Washington and be a “yes man” to President Obama. His intent is to represent the voices of his constituents and the United States Of America. To best serve his country, it is his duty to work with the republicans as well as the democrates so that all voices are heard and considered. He reiterated that his moderate views affords him the ability to see both sides of the issue and make rational decisions that best serve America and Utah.

After conducting this interview I came to the conclusion that Sam Granato is the best choice for Utah.

Sam Granato represents my beliefs in how politics should be conducted. With thoughfullness, integrity, ethics, and good common sense politics.

I proudly endorse Sam Granato for US Senator
