A Piedmont man is a candidate for U.S. Congress. Doug Enyart, owner of Clearwater Forest Consultants and a former U.S. Marine, was recently elected from a pool of candidates to represent the Constitution Party for the 8th Congressional District seat vacated by JoAnn Emerson. The special election will be held Tuesday, June 4.
Pointing to his status as a member of the Constitution Party and a small business owner, Enyart said, “Small businesses, which generate the majority of new jobs, cannot thrive and grow in the current climate of over regulation and instablility. They don’t know what’s going to hit them next. I’m going to work on that when I’m elected.”
As a candidate for the Constitution Party, Enyart hopes to attract the support of hard working, patriotic citizens, many who are unemployed/underemployed, and who are tired of the partisan bickering and gridlock that defines the two-party system that dominates our central government.
“Missouri has a unique opportunity to lead the nation to a freer, more prosperous future,” Enyart said.
Doug and his wife, Cheryl, are members of Trinity United Methodist Church. He served three terms as president of Trinity United Methodist Men. Enyart is a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow, and he is a graduate of Humboldt State University. Fifteen years ago, he launched his business, Clearwater Forest Consultants, LLC.
“People need a representative who will work tirelessly on their behalf to uphold constitutional principles and vote to reign in taxes and the out-of-control debt facing this country,” Enyart said.
