Meet the independent write-in candidate for governor

Christian Komor is running as an independent write-in candidate for governor.

Don’t like either the Democrat or the Republican running for governor? You have a third choice — independent write-in candidate Christian Komor.

Originally from Michigan, 59-year-old Komor moved to Arizona in 2005. Presently retired, Komor said with his bachelor of psychology degree, he has worked as a psychologist since 1982 and specialized in obsessive compulsive disorders. He is divorced and has a 24-year-old son.

At this point in time, why is he seeking the governor’s office as a write-in?

“My son is a big part of why I’m running,” Komor said. “Since I moved to Arizona, I’ve been involved heavily in photography; such an amazing, beautiful state. I’m interested in protecting our environment. I ended up working with a break-off group, International Panel on Climate Change.

“As I got more familiar through research, I discovered something most people don’t know. In the mid ‘20s and ‘30s, there’s been a slow trajectory of climate change; it is going to grow exponentially.”

When asked to further explain, Komor said, “As the ocean’s currents are slowly, less able to move the heat around the planet, there’s large methane storage from melting ice and things like brand new microbes emerging from the soil, and brand new creatures are releasing carbon from the soil. So, we’re headed for a situation we’re not going to be able to control. No actions left to deal with climate change.

“What we have to do is develop a project, a method of removing carbon from the atmosphere. That, of course, is a huge undertaking. The first thing is to bring carbon capture technology to the state, retrofit fossil fuel plants with carbon capture technology.”

From Komor’s website: “Based on my work with Vice President Al Gore’s climate team and subsequently a team of senior scientists refining the world’s leading plan for atmospheric carbon removal, I would say we have a little more time — probably to the mid-2030s — before the damage to our atmosphere becomes irreparable and climate disasters begin to escalate exponentially beyond our ability to keep up (The International Panel on Climate Change estimates closer to 2040). So, we must elect a leader who knows how to watch over Arizona’s present and its future. I know it’s scary to vote for someone who is not from the political machine, either left or right, but as the saying goes — the most dangerous choice is not to choose. This campaign may, unfortunately, be your last chance to do your part to repair our atmosphere and give your children back their future. The good news — we CAN repair atmospheric damage NOW!”

Komor said other issues do concern him — school safety and education funding, healthcare and migration issues.

“But we also have woven into our platform this very important focus on addressing climate change, which we view as an overriding issue,” Komor said. “That’s what is different and unique about our campaign.”
