Dear Congressional 27th Citizen,
I believe our country is at a critical crossroads. We can choose to build on our moral foundation, or we can continue to desecrate the values that our founders and many since have risked or given their lives for. Ours is a country blessed beyond belief. It is time we give thanks, stop political infighting and manipulation, and live up to the challenge of true democracy.
You can trust me to listen, to not resort to simple talking points, and to help design policies that reflect the true beliefs of our community. I have worked as a small business owner. I have served in municipal governments. I have volunteered countless hours in grassroots organizing and advocacy. Perhaps most importantly, I am fortunate father of four and now grandfather of six.
I believe far more unites us all than divides us. We need to make 2018 the year America returns to a government “of, by and for the People,” not of the powerful special interest groups. We must put the common good before politics and power. We need to establish an economy that justly values all our workers, putting Main Street before Wall Street. We must ensure that our communities work for everyone, from the most affluent to the most vulnerable.
Together, we can begin to make the needed reforms by standing on our founder’s shoulders. We owe it to our children.
