My name is Mark Edwards. I'm a father, I'm a self-employed lawyer, I serve in my church and my community and I'm a state delegate. Until LaVarr Webb told me so, I didn't know I was a power broker. I just wanted to represent my neighbors who shared my passion for politics and for holding our elected leaders accountable for the campaign promises they made.
I spent countless hours asking candidates hard questions and attending debates. I voted at convention based on the input I got from my neighbors and the observations that I made as I got to know the candidates. I had no idea that doing what I did made me some kind of power-hungry extremist. I just wanted to serve my neighbors. The caucus system works because it gives average, ordinary people like me a chance to serve my community at the grass-roots level. I'm not an extremist. I'm one of you.
