Bertran announces candidacy for congress at TEA Party

GOP member Paul B. Bertan, Ph.D. was on hand at the T.E.A. Party at the Federal Building April 15 in Syracuse to speak to the news media in regard to his candidacy for the 25th District Congressional Seat in 2010. This was the seat long held by Republican Jim Walsh, and now Dan Maffei. Bertran said he thought Walsh had done an excellent job and didn't want to run while he was in DC, but his retirement has cleared the way.

Bertran is concerned with the value of the dollar. He had a graph on hand showing the devaluing process that has taken place since 1900.

{Q}"The dollar has sunk to one percent of its year 1900 gold and silver backed value, and is the root cause of our present financial problems,"{Q} Bertran said, "I seem to be the only person who understands this."

He echoed much of the sentiment heard in the crowd that today's spending will burden our children and grandchildren. Bertran added retirees in the mix. He believes that instead of giving the public's money to banks and companies, these businesses should undergo normal bankruptcy reorganizations. He would focus on cutting spending, balancing the budget and lowering taxes, "As the sure way to simulate the economy and provide for jobs and retirement."

His Ph.D is in chemistry. He is retired from a full professorship and now teaches as an adjunct at Onondaga Community College. He holds a patent on removing poisons from the environment.
