As most Americans I do not take lightly my right to vote nor my responsibility to vote. I have however been a part of the silent majority.

Part of those who do not vote and those who vote when they choose to vote.

I have participated in student government in high school, college and in medical school. I was Student Body President.

In 1996 I ran as a State legislative candidate for the Democrats in Connecticut.
    August 20, 1996:
    Kropp for State Rep
    Dr. Elmer M Kropp (D) Assembly District #102
    Lee Pond Treasurer
    155 North Ivy Street #35
    Branford CT 06405 

I am well versed in federal and state regulations and law. I am a student of the law. I am a student of politics. It is time, and with the support of my family and friends I am placing my name on the ballot to represent the 4th Assembly District.

I am a resident of Yolo County and now a land owner of Lake County. I begin, as many, with my boots on the ground. My family and I are vested in the future of Clearlake.

I wish to bring to the Assembly a strong understanding of people, behavior, medicine and law.

I believe in independence and freedom to speak and chose. I should not be told “no.” I want people to be answered yes-do it.

In the Assembly it is my plan to write legislation that makes sense. I plan on voting non-sense off the record.

The 4th Assembly District needs a new fresh perspective. The 4h Assembly District does not need career politicians.

I am the individual you need and can count on to represent you!

God Bless America

Yours Sincerely,

Elmer Mark Kropp, MD
