Though this would be the first public office I will hold, should I be elected, that does not mean I do not have important skills that will be of great service to the residents of the 13th Congressional District. I am an experienced business man, have donated many many hours to community service, and have a great understanding as to the needs of the communities I would represent.
I know what it means to build and manage a business, to create jobs and put people to work. I understand how government can be oppressive to that process and I want to assure you, if elected, I will work to make it easier to attain that American dream again, whether it is to start a business or to simply have and hold a job that will provide for you and your family.
It is true that I was not born in this country, but I have lived over half of my life here now. I am a naturalized and very proud American citizen.
