Reuven Carlyle for State Senate - Democrat


Thank you for the personal and professional honor of serving as your state senator! It is inspiring to partner with our community to tackle the pressing public issues facing our state.

As your citizen legislator, I’m running for the State Senate in 2016 following my appointment in January after seven years of service in the House of Representatives. I’m running to continue to tackle major challenges. Our city and region is exploding with growth and change. Yet our public policy approach to education, transportation, mental health, environment, public safety, affordability and so many other issues too often lags behind our potential.

I ask, with deep appreciation for the opportunity to serve our district and state, for the honor of your vote in 2016.

(aka stop producing and selling cheap oil). Would Americans foot the bill for a second massive bailout of these energy companies, so soon after the first? Would they do it if Big Oil is the recipient? I think the political chaos surrounding that public discussion would be deadly to Big Oil all on its own. The industry’s long-term debts now total over $2 trillion, the report concludes, half of which “will never be repaid because the issuing firms comprehend neither how dramatically their industry has changed nor how these changes threaten to soon engulf them.” [emphasis added] An $2 trillion debt burden — with $1 trillion doomed never to be repaid — will kill even the largest industry once investors become convinced they’ll never get their money back. for more read: or see Thom Hartmann video at this link.
