“All we need are decent, honest, hard-working people who are accountable and who have America’s best interests at heart. And they’ll step up and they’ll join our government, and they will make things better if they have support." - President Obama

It is thrilling to see so many from this community seek to contribute by running for office, just as Barack Obama did more than 20 years ago.
