I'm John McFadden. I'm running for Billings' Mayor without promising favors. I'm not seeking group endorsements or soliciting campaign cash. If elected I'll vote to protect our rights. I won't vote for more taxes, fines, and fees.

But this election, unless individuals, who don't usually vote, throw some politicians out of office, these politicians will continue taking more liberties: They'll keep offering things, and when we refuse, they'll give them to us anyway -- along with the bill.

Our government isn't listening. Whether its people in City Hall, or the people in Washington, they don't go there to work for you. They go there to divide up what you earn. They devise new rules, taxes, fees, and fines-- just for you. But are you or your neighbors demanding more taxes, fees, and fines?

More than ever, Billings needs a transparent local government - one where the Gazette doesn't sue to get public information, and the city follows court orders, without being sued. Government by litigation is costly and unsustainable. As mayor I'll know what's going on in our City, and I'll make it public.

Finally, we should feel secure in having the same rights and protections under the law as the mayor and other public officials. Special favors lead to mischief. I've always spoken out against special favors. So if elected, I won't promote any special favors in City Hall - favors the rest of us always pay for.
