Favorite Quote:

"Actually, time itself is neutral, it can be used either destructively or constructively. More and More I feel that people of ill will have used time much more effectively than have the people of good will. We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."
EXCERPT from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Letter from a Birmingham Jail (1963)

Reason for Seeking Public Office:

If not now, when? If not me, then who? That is who I am and WHY I choose to run for office.
