Is your congressman a “fiduciary?”


One of the things a mother learns to do is advocate for others.  As we raise up our babies we look out for their best interests.  We encourage their success and nurture their way.  We must learn to transfer the power from us as parents to them as children, and raise them up to be independent and confident.  That’s our job.

We do this in a fiduciary capacity.  That is a person who is under an obligation to act in another’s interest to the exclusion of the fiduciary’s own interest.   We  owe to another the highest duty of care, good faith, trust, confidence and candor based on the relationship.  It is the relationship of one person to another, where the former is bound to exercise rights and powers in good faith for the benefit of the latter. 

So I ask you this:  Do you think your Congress Person has the responsibility of acting as a FIDUCIARY for you and our country as they review the finances, budgets, taxes and laws? Should this be thier standard of care?

    My Congessman is most certainly a Fiduciary, by practice, if not by law! You cannot legislate integrity. It comes from family values. Just a reminder…
