Today, I'm announcing my run for US Congress because I believe in the American Dream. Being part of that dream means helping those in need, when they need help.
Part of the Navy SEAL Creed that I had the honor to help write speaks to this:
“We expect to lead and be led. In the absence of orders I will take charge, lead my teammates and accomplish the mission. I lead by example in all situations.”
Our mission right now is to help our fellow Wisconsinites. With that in mind, I directed my staff to develop “Neighbors Helping Neighbors Wisconsin 3rd District on Facebook.
We kicked it off this morning and the response has been great. I would ask that you also post that site on your county web pages to get the word out. It is a no-nonsense, no government approach to taking care of our own.
We will take care of each other and politics will take care of itself.
Here is our formal announcement:
Today, I'm announcing my run for US Congress because I believe in the American Dream. I served in the Navy for over 26 years, 21 of those as a Navy SEAL. I have been around the world several times and know how special this country is.
I believe that the family is the building block of our nation. I believe that small businesses are the engine that drives our economy. I believe that we should work to educate our children so that they can grow into productive members of society.
Our nation was founded by farmers, tradesmen, and scholars. All of these hold equal value in our society and we need to recognize and support them as such.
I believe in less government and more personal freedom. I believe that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution should be respected. I believe in the rule of law, and equality under our laws.
I believe that with hard work and grit, we can be anything we want in this great country.
I also believe that we must work to protect our rights and the rights of our fellow citizens if we are to remain the, “shining city on a hill”, that Ronald Reagan spoke of. I am willing to do this work, and I am asking you to join me.
I will represent the 3rd district of Wisconsin with all of the energy, ingenuity, integrity, and zeal that I protected our republic with as a Navy SEAL.
God bless you all.
