My Top 3 Priorities

  • No one left behind, jobs and housing for everyone. We already spend a trillion a year.for the poor including medicade, and medicare. That would pay for 20 million new jobs. This would rain down a trillion dollars a year into the American economy
  • Medical and Dental for everyone The affordable care act (Obamacare) was never designed to cover everyone. At best 12% of the population will not be covered. We need a medical and dental clinic at every hospital.
  • Put everyone to work cleaning the environment and restoring our roads, bridges and waterways.

Arthur Harris is an industrialist entrepreneur working in many different fields including real estate development, transportation device production, biofuel production, financial planning and research and development.

He drifted from job to job until he landed the position as an insurance agent for National Life insurance company. then Lone Star life insurance company. he struggled year after year trying to bring in enough money to support his little family. With the help of his church they survived but continued to struggle until he decided to go back to school. He started to study television and radio at Pasadena City College then electrical engineering technology at DeVry University in the City of Industry, California. Going to school all day and working as a Titan for the Teamsters all night he suffered trying to bring his family through the darkest part of his life to his near complete exhaustion.

He seemed to have a talent for this, electronics. He stopped working as a Teamster and started working as an engineering technician at Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He designed many of the test systems that are still in use today. As is the tradition at Jet Propulsion Laboratory his name is on several of the spacecraft traveling throughout the cosmos.

In 1995 he divorced his wife of 15 years due to irreconcilable differences and started a new job at Cellular Phone Repair services. He moved up the chain of command and became the general manager of technical services. Trained by all the cellular phone companies at the time by 1999 he became an authority in the cellular industry.

During his tenure at CPR he started tinkering with an old BD-5 aluminum airplane chassis and a 450 Honda motorcycle motor in his first “I” car prototype tearing up the desert. In what he would later  call the I car he narrowly escaped with minor burns as it bursts into flames in the Mojave desert  

In 1998 he married his second wife Robin Smyth where difficulties arose from his teenage boy and his substance abuse that caused the marriage to last about three months  They remain good friends to this day.

In the year 2000 he left CPR services and went into business for himself. Working as an insurance producer, and a cellular broker he sold thousands of cellular phones throughout the world.

His company” the Intrepid Engineering Group” started in the field of cellular communication. By 2000 he was sought out as a cellular consultant to many countries and traveled to many places throughout the world.

In 2007 he married Dr. Janet Oneal in Kensington Maryland in a private civil marriage. He continued working as an insurance agent and a research scientist for several years where in 2013 he started in his real estate business.

He competed in the reusable space craft competition for NASA submitting a design for a Space Elevator.  Because there were no materials that could be used for a 60000 mile counter weight he developed a way to create one meter and longer carbon nano tubes. . He started a bio-fuel company to use bio-Diesel

company is ready to start production of his beloved “I” car as soon as the Detroit facility is ready.

Because of the redevelopment of properties throughout United States he has seen the desolation, suffering, and hopelessness of many people in our country where his properties exist

There seems to be a total disconnection of what is happening within our communities,, The goal is to stop the downward spiral of hopelessness and get back to work.  We need to put America First.  There are 30 million real people suffering on a daily basis,, They’re worried about food and their survival. Lets get to work America
