“I believe in our unalienable rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness,” said Tosone. “I believe the primary purpose of government is to protect those rights.

Tosone points out that the largest block of voters in the district are registered as Unaffiliated. “Many believe the two-party system is broken.
