Welcome to Steve Knight for Congress
It is time to take a stand against politics as usual in Washington DC. I am running for Congress to make real, positive change in the way this country operates.
A native of the High Desert and a veteran of the United States Army, this is where I spent 18 years as a Police Officer with LAPD, and where my wife and I continue to raise our family. I know that the members of our community respect the sacrifices made by our soldiers, they want safe neighborhoods, and they demand a quality education for our children. These are the principles I grew up with and the ones I hold today.
As the recipient of a perfect score on the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association scorecard for the last two years, and a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment, I will stand up for the rights that we all value. We continue to see our lives, jobs, and rights threatened, this is not something that I am willing compromise.
Join me in my quest to protect the taxpayers, families, and small businesses in our community.
I want to hear your thoughts and ideas for a region we call home.
