State of California (Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano, Sonoma Counties) June 2, 1998 Primary

Political Philosophy for Timothy Oliver Stoen

Candidate for State Senator; District 2

This information is provided by the candidate

  • Passion for social justice arising from a "public service gene"
  • Schooling and aptitude for structural solutions
  • "Life-experience" education as the adversary of Jim Jones and the person Jones blamed for his downfall ("Tim Stoen is responsible for this....We win when we go down"), learning at the core of my being the truth of Lord Acton's dictum that "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." One who has experienced the abuse of power has learned a profound lesson in wisdom and can more likely be trusted with power.
