A Safeguard Representative
You will have a new voting option
The Safeguard Concept You will cast your vote either by a 800 Phone Number or by the Internet utilizing a secured network. You will be able to vote only once per legislation based on its legislative merits. For those who have access to the Internet or a Phone. A video or a audio summary will be provided for you before the vote. My vote will be based on the majority vote of 51% or direct representation. In order to truly represent the majority vote, 51% of registered voters must vote out of the total registered voters in district 3. Based on the latest numbers from the State of Nevada Election Division of registered voters , no one party is even close to having a majority. The 51 % will be made of a broad spectrum of various parties. In other words, it has to be a combined voting party effort. If the 51% votes are not reached, then I will vote on the constituents behalf. How you vote will remain anonymous and I want even know how you voted. That remains private. All information about you will also be anonymous and will be hidden. You get one vote per pin number and there are instructions about that in the demo.
Why I Got involved?
From the article from the Nevada Laughlin Times about this idea... Nevada candidate pledges to bring power to the people. "In September 2011, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder invoked Public Act 4, which permitted him to replace elected officials in the economically stressed cities of Pontiac and Detroit with emergency managers who had the authority to nullify labor contracts, privatize public services and even terminate elected officials, resulting in those emergency managers being answerable only to the governor. After a certain period of time, the people of Pontiac and Detroit didn't like what they saw and so what they did is they got a referendum together, St. John stated. That referendum to do away with PA4 made it to the ballot and passed. Everybody thought that the governor would have to deal with the people directly. Thirty seven days later, the law was re-written and it was made referendum proof. The governor signed it and put it into law, which put him back in business". This action negated or dismissed the voters and our democracy no longer existed. Even in other states, voters are now being legislated out. This to me is a very slippery slope that threatens the very fabric of our democracy.
For the first time in this constituent alternative approach, your direct voting option with the legislative process will have a significant role as to directly representing the voters of District 3. Having you on the inside, it will also make the legislative process more transparent and put democracy back in your hands where it belongs. Having you involved, there will be many issues that we will be working on.
The priorities that I will pursue by being focused on local issues are the following: Number 1 priority is jobs. The latest numbers are hovering above 80,000. Our employment rate is close to the bottom within the U.S.. The link "Number 1 Priority" will explain further my ideas for creating jobs. I am very pro-business and will do as much as I can to streamline regulations and keep our government out of businesses. Most importantly, I am a job orientated candidate as a result of my unique business experience. I will work on enhancing our existing companies and work on other priorities that I will pursue.(1) I will pursue diversification to have other industries move to Nevada. (2) Expanding alternative energy to create jobs and to bring down the costs of utilities over a period of time.(3) Legislating improvements on the AFC ACT especially getting coverage in another state as in the case of Laughlin and Arizona. (4) It is hard to believe that our water level for Las Vegas including District 3, is at an all time low. I will pursue other options other then construction of what is called a 3rd straw in Lake Mead. (5) The circumstances regarding our vets is extremely important to me and I will find solutions for the homeless and bring back their dignity. There are many issues that we will be working on. I look forward to working with our constituents on these and other issues. (6) Such as, improving our educational system, expanding employment training programs for new job opportunities and improve the status of the middle class, re-working legislation for immigration reform.

Steven St John Congress 2014
Signage now being installed in District 3
This Video Will Explain My New Concept And The Reasons Why I Got Involved As An Independent Candidate. This idea is new and has never been tried in Congress before. The constituents of district 3 will be voting on every piece of legislation that crosses my desk which preserves your voice, your opinion and what you think is best as to your vote. This is non-partisan alternative and is open to all registered voters in district 3. Most importantly by keeping the focus on local issues. Creating jobs is my number 1 priority as a result of our persistent high unemployment rate and improve the status of our middle class by my plan to create jobs.
