ABOUT MARTIN HEWITT
As a lawyer, I have been a champion of small business by ensuring compliance with state securities laws for those individuals and small companies seeking to grow and provide employment opportunities at the local level. At the same time, I advised members of Congress during the drafting of the Dodd-Frank Act to ensure that bad-actors are unable to prey on investors and separate them from their hard-earned money. I am also a Liaison to the Commission on Law and Aging of the American Bar Association. Working with the Commission, I have raised awareness of Financial Elder Abuse and the devastation suffered by the elderly who are its victims.

Why am I running and why am I doing so as a moderate Republican?
I have decided to run as a moderate Republican because, while both parties have a strong heritage, it is the Republican Party that has lost its way. It has turned away from Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and so many other great leaders.
Today the Republican Party has been overtaken by leaders more interested in protecting their personal power than serving the people who put them into office.
Today's Republican Party has become the Party of big money and special interests.
Today's Republican Party is led by people who confuse bullying and angry tweeting with strong leadership.
I am running as a moderate Republican after listening to many of the constituents who believe that Congressman Frelinghuysen no longer represents their best interests.
We the people. Those are the first words of the preamble to our Constitution; "We the people" not we the party.
FREEDOM OF AUTONOMY
I believe that men and women should have autonomy over their own anatomy without government interference.
