Ken's decision to run for State Senate came after careful consideration and discussion with his family, friends, and party supporters. Ken chose to embark upon this effort because he feels that the current legislators have failed to uphold their oath of office and represent their constituents according to the constitution. In this era of ever-eroding rights and unfair government encroachment on citizens' rights, property and freedoms, the time is ripe for a change. Kenneth Lee represents the change we are all looking for.
