A month after the horrific attacks on our country on 9-11, I joined the U.S. Army Reserve. I did so because I believe in America and everything our country stands for — freedom, liberty and equal opportunity. But, our government today is failing us. The politicians in office simply aren’t listening. Partisan politics has become more important than people. We need leaders who will fight for our country, our children and our future – to create jobs, and make sure people can afford to live in our beautiful state.
