The crises we face today are upon us – on many fronts.  We are facing important challenges. (   Foremost among these: We are a divided nation. Our security is at risk –– and the polarization of politics and society threatens to tear us apart and keep us from properly addressing the challenges we must face.  The crises are real, but the solutions lie within each of us – as we unite and resolve to lay aside differences, practice civility, and with candor and respect tackle the challenges we face as a nation.

Our diversity, as a nation, is one of our greatest strengths.  We need leadership and representation that will bring us together and help us become One.

In our Unity, In our Leadership, in our Representation, and thus, in our Country’s Direction – especially, Economically – we are in trouble!  Fellow citizens: It is time to Stand; to Speak up! Time to Choose; To Vote but Not for the ones who got us here, but for new Leadership.  Our GOAL: “ … secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity … “

I have identified these  areas of vital concern.  Let the dialogue begin.  Please let us know of your concerns and how I can best serve you.  This is how I propose to best Represent you: with openness and respect.

I am running for Congress to heal and restore – reversing our current course – addressing the many issues before us.

Make no mistake, The battle at hand is no longer ideological –  this war is Spiritual, Social, Ethical, yes, Political, and Moral at its core.

Our wounds and division are deep.

We are challenged on every front – but not defeated.

We are anxious and hurting –

but we are not without Hope.

As a friend and neighbor, I offer Real, Independent, Trustworthy Leadership – focused on Honorable Service.

In times of crisis we turn to trusted leaders who offer integrity, experience, courage, and competence to advance unity, justice, and solutions – someone we Trust.  And we must look also to ourselves – to one another!  This is our central challenge, the crisis of our time: UNITED we Stand, DIVIDED we Fall. 

As a pilot, my Checklist begins with this challenge – my absolute focus is the safe conduct of our journey.  Please join me, and – United, as One – we will address the issues before us, and prevail.  Failure is not an option
