Civil Liberties/Civil Rights

Freedom is never free.

Our Constitutional rights, our civil liberties, and our privacy need to be protected at all times. An ACLU member since 1978 and a member of the Southern Poverty Law Center since 1981, Bill has been fighting for civil rights for nearly 40 years.

Bill will fight against all discrimination against individuals, religions, and country of origin.

Bill opposes any attempts by politicians to limit or constrict Americans’ voting rights.

Bill’s maternal grandparents emigrated from Austria. They entered the US and worked hard to succeed in America. Immigrants are a key piece of what makes America great. Bill will oppose any efforts to build walls around this country in a misguided effort to pander to special interests.

As a former Mayor in charge of day to day operations of a police department, Bill has always supported law enforcement but will stand up for those who are mistreated by the criminal justice system.

Bill opposes efforts to undermine Americans’ privacy by limiting encryption or private communication.
