Welcome to John Bering's "Candidate for the Common Man" Website!
Candidate For Louisiana State Representative, District 49
It has been my honor to serve this great nation as a soldier in the United States Army. After retirement in 1997, I went to work as a helicopter pilot in the Gulf of Mexico. While living in Patterson, I met and married Valerie, who is a wonderful stepmother to our beautiful daughter. In 2006 we moved, and now call Jeanerette home.
I ask you for the honor to serve as your representative for District 49 in the Louisiana House of Representatives. As your employee I would be answerable to you. As a retired, combat and disabled Army officer, I am still honor bound to uphold my oath to defend the Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. As a conservative, I believe our liberties are derived from God not legislation. And they should not be infringed. I support lower taxes and a balanced budget and oppose TIF's. I support creating economic and energy independence for Louisiana, with less reliance on the federal government. I support reducing burdensome government regulation on local businesses. I will fight to have a Hurricane Protection System for Iberia and Vermilion Parishes. I want to improve our educational system with "School Choice" and give our teachers quality pay along with the resources necessary to place Louisiana at the top of national rankings. I believe our law enforcement and fire departments deserve quality pay and equipment necessary to be the best in the nation. I am Pro Family and Pro Life.
"I felt it, my patriotic duty to join the army and put on a uniform to defend the citizens of this country against all enemies foreign. With your support I will continue my patriotic duty and put on a suit to defend the citizens of this state against all enemies domestic."
As a Middle Class American I do not have the deep pockets my opponents have. Any financial or volunteer support you can give will be greatly appreciated.
I hope you will give me the honor of your vote for House District 49 Representative on Election Day.
