Join Our Team

I’m going to need help from all of you. A few brave souls may be willing to knock on doors with me. A few of you may be willing to make phone calls. I hope all of you will be willing to send postcards to your friends and family asking them to vote for me.

They say it takes a village, and now all of you are my village. Please help me make our county even better.
