Statement for Congressional seat - 2012
“From my very first days as a Trooper, I have seen, first hand, the impact a failing system has on the ability of our citizens to lead productive and responsible lives. We must do better. For too long, Rhode Island and our nation have laid victim to the ’what’s in it for me’ syndrome, and look where it’s gotten us.

I believe my fresh and untainted perspective separates me from others whose vision has been blurred by partisan obligations and personal ambition
This may be the type of political statement that voters in 2012 will respond to. We'll see .
