I am honored to serve this district in the thoughtful, independent tradition of those who represented us in the past – leaders who distinguished themselves through their commitment to public service.

When you sent me to Washington, I had no idea of the historic times ahead. As
one of the few veterans serving in Congress today, I was proud to be named one of 28 emerging leaders in Congress for my military and intelligence experience.

We face many challenges both abroad and here at home; fighting the war on terror, curbing federal spending to control a growing deficit, encouraging economic development, protecting our environment, reducing traffic gridlock, assuring our children attend safe, drug-free schools,
and jobs, jobs, jobs.

Thank you for the honor of representing you in the Congress. With your vote, I will continue to fight for our Tenth District families in Washington.
