Meet the Candidate

With only a few days until the election, I will continue going door to door, meeting voters and raising awareness of my campaign. I would like to thank all of my friends for their support and advice. I would also like to thank the people of the Sixth District for their kindness and taking the time to listen to my platform. I hope that this campaign serves as a harbinger of better candidates, campaigns, and government to come. If you are a Citizen of the 6th District, I need your vote. Please get out to vote Tuesday November 5; also remind your friends, neighbors, and members of your household. Democracy works best when people are educated about candidates and actually VOTE.
