The first thing I want to share with you is how privileged I feel to work with Ron. As you can see from reading through this website, Ron is a wise, compassionate man, who gains your trust easily. There are no hidden agendas or spin with Ron's vision. His dedication and ideas for creating a better society with a smaller, more transparent and efficient government, make Ron the best choice for Governor of our state.
As for me, like Ron, I was born in Southern California, where writing, debating, business, and the arts were interests early in my life. When I was thirteen, we moved to Juneau, Alaska. Living in Juneau opened me up to the great outdoors and awakened an appreciation of just how fortunate we are to live in this country.After high school, I returned to Northern California for a brief stint with college. A year later I was back in Juneau and working at the local television station. In college I discovered my interest for television and radio production, but it wasn't until working at KJUD that I realized how much I enjoyed the creative process. My position at KJUD was limiting, so I applied for a production gig with the main commercial company in Juneau. I was very happy with my job but after a year, the owner decided to retire and the company retired with him.I spent the next few months operating an auto detailing company from my home, then, opportunity knocked again. This time the job was a regional manager position for a new energy-saving product from 3M. The only thing was; the job was in Los Angeles. I took the job and within two months had our two largest sales--Northridge University and a Pillsbury plant.Moving back to L.A. opened up many opportunities in various industries, from fuel-saving technology to Rock n' Roll band management, and even though many of my projects did not pan out the way I had planned, I never let anything or anybody keep me down. I took the not-so-good with the good as part of my personal growth experience because I understood that it was the all of it that was making me the person I was.From 2000 to 2003, I helped manage one of the most popular nightclubs in San Francisco, but I left because I felt there was something more I needed to be doing. I wanted to create something people would enjoy but that would also be meaningful. I started writing scripts and developing unique formats for television programming.The bottom line is whatever I have accomplished, or not accomplished, in my various careers probably doesn't mean much to you as your Lieutenant Governor--most candidates go on and on about their personal accomplishments only to accomplish little for their constituents while a select few see most of the benefits. What matters is how I grew and what I took from these experiences and how I can use this knowledge for the good of our state. One of the things I've learned is that if you want to be successful, then help someone else become successful. This will be my starting point as Lieutenant Governor; making Montana successful in job creation, energy diversification, and economic growth, to name a few. I will start every day asking myself, and you, "How can I help make you successful?" Ron and I have many ideas--some proven, some, just common sense--of how to make Montana more successful, but your input is crucial and always invited. Since 2000, I have been a political junkie, watching all kinds of news programming from MSNBC and FOX, to national and local network news, and while I still watch these outlets, I find that the most consistently truthful and in-depth coverage is on Link TV ("Democracy Now" is my favorite news program), Free Speech TV, and the Internet. I will use this massive, collective news source as much as possible. In addition to my own research, I will need you to check me when I am wrong about something. If I change my position on an issue it is because more information has become available and that information may come from you.My main message here is about what I will do as your personal representative and as the man you trust to improve your life in tangible ways. Ron and I have a shared vision and the integrity to carry it out. We do not accept corporate donations because we are accountable to you, not "artificial people".
I have lived at both ends of the spectrum, so I know what it's like to have money, but maybe more importantly, I know what it is like to live with the daily stress of not having enough.
If you are poor, I will work to create more opportunities for you to go higher. If you are unemployed, I will work to find you employment. If you are moderately successful, I will work to make you more successful. If you are wealthy, I will work to make you more wealthy--just not at the expense of others. If you're hope is waning, I will not only work to restore it, but I will not stop until that hope becomes reality. This is my promise. This is who I am.
I've made many sacrifices in following my dreams, always with the invaluable support of family and friends. One of my dreams is to serve in public office, where I will continue to do what is necessary in helping Montanan's create more opportunity for a better life. I believe a highly educated, healthy and well adjusted society creates a better life for all of us and my ideas and inspiration stem from this primary belief.What is best for the people of our great state and how the majority of my fellow Montanan's choose to get there will always guide my actions. I don't see this as a stepping stone of a career, but as an opportunity to help as many people realize their own dreams. It may sound corny, but it's how I feel and I believe our feelings are our truth.
My door as Lieutenant Governor will always be open and I will be here to listen and to help in any way I can. Regarding my views on important issues we all face everyday, please visit my page on Facebook at;
2012 Candidate for Montana's Lieutenant Governor, Marc Mulcahy (click "info" on left side of page)
Given the current political landscape and the overwhelming dissatisfaction with Democratic and Republican leaders, 2012 offers a great opportunity for Libertarians, Independents, and other political parties. This election can be a huge win for the people of Montana and the rest of the country. Thank You for your support.
