Thank you for your vote and for the confidence and trust you have placed in me to serve as your County Commission.
My door is always open.
We need to get back to the roots our nation set forth by the founding fathers and follow our Constitution as it was intended. The bulk of this nation’s founders were pastors, ministers, and clergy.
George Washington, himself became a chaplain while he was as captain.
Most of the signers of the Constitution were clergymen and four were current or former full-time pastors.
Almost half of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, as well as most all of the founding fathers graduated from orthodox Christian teaching seminaries. Many were church elders and church officers which included:
Samuel Adams – signer of Declaration, father of the Revolution
John Hancock – Gov. of Massachusetts, Acting President, started the Minutemen, first signer of the Declaration
John Quincy Adams – Vice President the American Bible Society, 6th US President
Robert Treat Paine – signer of the Declaration, military chaplain
Rufus King – signer of the Constitution, ratifier of the Bill of Rights, manager of the American Bible Society
Bushrod Washington, John Lowell, Jonathan Trumbull, Timothy Pickering, William Samuel Johnson, Zephaniah Swift, James Bowden, James Kent, John Cotton Smith, Joel Barrow, John Treadwell.
These were all ministers in one form or another. I said that to say all this: I believe we, as Americans and Christians need to engage in the battle of what is right in the eyes of God and not what’s right in our own mind or according to what a particular party or special interest group thinks.
Doing what is right does not have a color or party affiliation. It’s just the right thing to do.
