Questions & Answers

Questions from The League of Women Voters San Diego (LWVSD) and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (LWVNCSD) (3)

If elected, how much time and energy will you be able to devote to this volunteer position over the next four years, given your other personal and professional obligations?
Answer from J. D. Bols:

I currently devote about 10 hours a week to conservative ccauses and candidates. If elected i would imagine that committment would increase.

What is the most significant challenge facing this party in the next decade, and if you are elected, how will you help the party prepare to meet it?
Answer from J. D. Bols:

The Party has been under the same leadership for 13 years. Too many Central Committee members are place holders and do nothing. We need new leadership and new Central Committee members. We have the superior ideas, but our communication of that has been horrible. Time for Change!

What public figures, past and present, do you believe have given the most postive examples of what this party stands for? Please explain your reasons for thinking so.
Answer from J. D. Bols:

Ronald Reagan remains an icon and inspiration to all of us! He showed us how conservative ideas could become popular ideas through proper communication and application. Donald Trump is accomplishing the same thing while using a different style. He has been able to set the national agenda and the dialogue almost exclusively. (ie who talked about the Wall before him?). Both men shows us how we can be successful if we apply their startegies right here in San Diego.
