About the author:
Michael Flint grew up in Scotland, graduated from St. Andrews University, and then headed west through Toronto (Ontario) and Grand Rapids (Michigan) to Santa Barbara (California).
Most of those decades were spent in entrepreneurial and consulting endeavors in various aspects of information technology, printing and publishing.
In the months leading up to the 2012 Presidential election he tired of listening to intelligent friends yell at each other with dueling talking points, agree that nothing would really change in Washington no matter who won and, of course, offer no soluions.
A problem-solver by nature, his first book "Mission 535+2" is his way of offering a basis for changing the way Washington politicians deals with "We the People."
Michael D. Flint
When it comes to politics, I am tired of hearing intelligent people indulge in polarized pugilism while, at the same time, admitting that nothing will really change in Washington, D.C., no matter who is running the show.
In the 2012 election, we re-elected 90% of incumbent politicians with an average disapproval rating of 75%. That is downright absurd!
Remember the old saying ... "There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and those who wonder what just happened!"
"We the People" need to unite and move up into the first group demanding that our politicians work together in a strategic, pragmatic, and problem-solving manner as they legislate our nation's future.
Mission 535+2 lays out a simple, non-partisan, research-based process designed to help communities establish a structure where their elected representatives communicate with them regularly with transparency and accountability.
As the title suggests, this is a mission. It's time for "We the People" to stop whining and "change the game" so that our children will inherit a nation in better shape than the one we took over.
