Thank you to those who have shown early support for our campaign in the form of contributions, pledges, and other offers to help.
As I begin to speak with people throughout the district one thing is immediately clear to me – the needs of regular folks have been neglected and too much attention has been spent trying to divide us and get us to vote against our own best interests.
But there is a will to change course. I hear it in conversations between volunteers standing up to do what is right. I see it on the faces of retirees trying to impart some wisdom to our younger generation and leave this world a little better than they found it.
I served our country for 23 years in the US Navy, with dedication, perseverance, and the notion that if I worked hard I would achieve my goals. I’ve traveled the world, and have spent time in countries large and small. I know in my heart that we do not need to sacrifice our liberty or the rights of others to keep our nation safe.
Together, we can bring change to our district and help to create a more sustainable and vibrant economy with good jobs and health care for all. These are not pie in the sky pipe dreams. We’ve done it before and we can do it again. If we work together.
I’m ready to serve, again. I hope you’ll serve with me.
