It was about the 11th hour when the First District of Virginia’s Democrats ultimately decided on a Congressional candidate on Saturday: Norman Mosher of Irvington.

Recently, Democrats were not certain they would have a candidate for November’s election. Then, at their district convention in Fredericksburg Saturday, Ted Hontz of King George nominated Mosher for the job. Mosher’s was the only nomination and he will face the winner of The Republican’s June 10 primary, probably incumbent congressman Rob Wittman and Libertarian Xavian Draper.

Northumberland County Democrats committeeman Bob Lindsey noted that Mosher, a retired US Navy Captain, has been active in Lancaster County Democratic Party affairs and helped Hontz in Hontz’s unsuccessful effort to get the party’s nomination to run against Wittman in Wittman’s first race for the position. Information provided by Northumberland County Democratic Committee chairman Frank Kober, pointed out that Mosher has served on the Irvington town council.

Mosher served for 26 years in the Navy and commanded Navy vessels in both the Atlantic and Pacific. After retiring from the Navy he worked on the staff of the United States Senate Armed Services Committee while it was chaired by Sen. Sam Nunn who retired in 1997. In that work, Mosher analyzed Navy, Marines and Special Operations research, development and procurement budgets.

The biographical information provided noted that Mosher and his wife, Jan, moved to Irvington in 1996 and that year and again in 1997 sailed their ketch to the Caribbean. Later, after Mosher had started his company, Crosswater Cats, he sailed his prototype motorized catamaran from the Chesapeake Bay to Bermuda, 600 miles, in 51 hours. In addition to Crosswater Cats, after Mosher left the staff of the Armed Services Committee, he worked as a consultant on ocean research, shipbuilding and propulsion and related matters. More recently he has become a board member of LJI, Inc., a non-profit devoted to helping girls in India who have been rescued from human traffickers.

Both Lindsey and Kober noted that Mosher had given a series of excellent power point presentations on Global Warming, or as it is now called, Climate Change, in the area.

A call to Mosher was not returned and no information regarding his place and date of birth, religious affiliation or education was available at press time.

First District Democrats Nominate Norm Mosher for Congress

At the First Congressional District Democratic Convention today, Democrats nominated Norm Mosher for Congress.

Norm Mosher is a resident of Irvington, VA and previously served on the Town Council of Irvington.

“I’m running because I’m seeing how Congress is dysfunctional — it’s not working at all. Our families, our communities and our Commonwealth are paying the price. People need to be able to look forward to the future. This means economic security for all — good jobs, good roads and good schools,” said Mosher.

“When folks look up at Congress and see all the partisan wrangling and dirt throwing they lose faith. Why should people have any trust in our government if it’s not accountable? I want to restore people’s faith in America and the American Dream. Our challenges can be our opportunities to do things in new ways, in better ways — but first we have to learn to work together again — and that’s why I am standing here today. Through my life I’ve gained experience, knowledge and know-how on leading teams to meet overwhelming challenges. I’ve answered my country’s call for service before, and I’m answering it now.”

Norm retired from the Navy with the rank of Captain, after a 26 year career. During his career, he commanded ships in both the Atlantic and Pacific, and a squadron of destroyers in the Pacific. Mosher was an early volunteer to serve in Vietnam. Even before the arrival of American combat troops, he was sailing the Vietnam coasts and mouth of the Mekong River in wooden junks as an advisor to a paramilitary group. Later, the first ship he commanded was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation for its performance in the coastal waters of Vietnam. For his service in this period, he was awarded the Legion of Merit with Combat Distinguishing Device, the Bronze Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device, and the Air Medal.

Following retirement from the Navy, he became a Professional Staff Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee chaired by the highly respected Senator Sam Nunn.  Norm was responsible for analytical oversight of $25 billion of the Department of Defense budget for Research and Development, and Procurement for the Navy, Marine Corps, and Special Operations forces.

“I’m delighted to endorse Norm Mosher for Congress,” said Ted Hontz. “As a former Naval officer and businessman, and as a long term resident of the First Congressional District, he’s the right person at the right time. But more importantly, Norm Mosher has the know-how and  understands the diverse needs of our citizens, so he won’t need a ramp-up period to be effective on Capitol Hill. As a entrepreneur and businessman, Norm understands the issues important to the business community. You won’t see Norm voting to shut down the government and denying pay to the large government and contractor workforce in the district.  And for many small businesses, those losses were never regained. I’m excited about the potential to have a congressman who votes for the best interests of his constituents. Norm Mosher is the leader we’ve been looking for to represent us in Congress.”

In 1990, Mosher started his own consulting company specializing in ocean research, shipbuilding, ship propulsion systems, and related areas. Mosher’s clients included shipbuilding companies, marine propulsion companies, and the world’s leading ocean research institution where he developed an interest in the science underlying global warming and climate change.

Norm and his wife, Jan, moved to Irvington, VA in 1996 and sailed their ketch to the Caribbean for the 1996 and 1997 seasons.  Mosher founded Crosswater Cats LLC in 2001 to develop and build large power catamarans. In 2005 he sailed the prototype catamaran to Bermuda in a West Marine power boat rally. The 600 odd miles from Thimble Shoals Light in Chesapeake Bay to the Bermuda Spit Buoy was covered in 51 hours. The second boat came in 26 hours later.

Currently, Norm serves as a board member of LJI, INC, a young nonprofit organization developing programs for at-risk girls in India who have been rescued from human trafficking. LJI is building a publishing platform to address policy and practice in this area.

“Norm Mosher is a fighter. We need someone who is going to fight for us. During the government shutdown, the current Congressman didn’t do anything to bring the impasse to an end because he didn’t want to rock the boat. Even when people in our district were hurting, he couldn’t bring himself to challenge his partisan handlers. We need more than a yes man who just follows his partisan leaders. Norm Mosher understands the needs of our diverse district and he knows how to sail in rough waters. He’s not afraid, he won’t back down. This is the kind of leadership we need and deserve,” said Marc Broklawski, Chair, Virginia’s First Congressional District Democratic Committee.

CAMPAIGN ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

THANKS, DONNA. YOU HAVE DONE SO MUCH FOR VIRGINIA

DEMOCRATS. I AM HUMBLED AND HONORED TO HAVE YOUR TRUST.

AND, TED. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND KIND

INTRODUCTION. YOU ARE THE GOLD STANDARD FRIEND WHOSE

SUPPORT I TREASURE.

AND, THANK YOU, FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT DEMOCRATIC

CONVENTION DELEGATES. (TRY TO SAY THAT FAST!) YOUR

EXPRESSION OF CONFIDENCE AND SUPPORT TRULY INSPIRES ME

TO PRESS ON FOR VICTORY IN THIS RACE.

I HAVE BEEN ASKED WHY I WANT TO TAKE ON THIS CHALLENGE,

AND, NATURALLY, I HAVE GIVEN A LOT OF THOUGHT TO THAT

QUESTION. IT COMES DOWN, I THINK, TO WHAT WAS SAID IN A FEW

LINES OF POETRY:

“I SLEPT AND DREAMED THAT LIFE WAS BEAUTY;

I WOKE AND FOUND THAT LIFE WAS DUTY.”

IN THE PAST, IN THE NAVY, IT WAS MY GREAT PRIVILEGE TO HAVE

THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMAND SHIPS AND MEN.

NOT A DAY WENT BY THAT I DIDN’T FEEL THE WEIGHT OF

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SHIP AND THE

WELFARE AND SAFETY OF THE MEN MAKING THAT PERFORMANCE

POSSIBLE.

I USED TO LIKEN THAT CONSTANT WEIGHT AS CARRYING STONES

ALL DAY AND EVERY DAY TO REMIND ME OF MY FIRST DUTY TO MY

SHIP AND MY MEN.

FOR US TO BE SUCCESSFUL, THEY HAD TO COME FIRST. THE

SAYING THAT LOYALTY DOWN BREEDS LOYALTY UP IS SOUND AND

TRUE FOR EVERY LEADERSHIP SITUATION. YOU CAN’T DO BIG

JOBS ALONE, BUT TOGETHER, YOU CAN DO MIGHTY THINGS. THE

TEAM IS EVERYTHING. WE ARE THE TEAM. WE CAN DO MIGHTY

THINGS. AND TOGETHER WE WILL.

WHEN ONE IS ELECTED TO REPRESENT THE INTERESTS OF A

GROUP OF PEOPLE, THE BURDEN OF RESPONSIBILITY IS HEAVY,

BUT IT IS A BURDEN WILLINGLY TAKEN UP AND HUMBLING—AND TO

BE CARRIED EVERY DAY LIKE A BAG OF STONES HEAVY ENOUGH

TO REMIND OF WHO YOU ARE, AND FOR WHOM YOU WORK.

FORGET THAT, AND YOU SHATTER THE SOCIAL CONTRACT THAT

GAVE YOU LEADERSHIP. LEADERSHIP CAN BE GIVEN. LEADERSHIP

CAN BE ABANDONED. IN WHICH CASE, A NEW LEADER MUST BE

FOUND.

POLLS TELL US AMERICANS BELIEVE CONGRESS IS BROKEN AND

DYSFUNCTIONAL—IT IS NOT WORKING, AT ALL, AND PEOPLE ARE

MAD BECAUSE LEADERS HAVE ABANDONED THEIR DUTY. AND, WE

ARE ALL PAYING THE PRICE IN:

POOR JOB RECOVERY AND CREATION

LACK OF INVESTMENT IN INFRASTRUCTURE

NEGLECT FOR OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND RELIEVING THE COSTS

OF HIGHER EDUCATION

THE CURRENT STATE OF AMERICA CAN’T CONTINUE

OUR SHRINKING MIDDLE CLASS GETS A SMALLER SHARE OF

NATIONAL WEALTH THAN ANYWHERE EXCEPT CHINA AND INDIA,

AND BOTH OF THEM ARE CATCHING UP TO US. WE ARE HEADED

TOWARD THIRD WORLD STATUS.

IN THE RECENT RECESSION 1/5 OF THE JOBS LOST WERE LOW

WAGE. IN OUR RECOVERY NEARLY 3/5 OF THE JOBS REGAINED

HAVE BEEN LOW WAGE.

THE MIDDLE AND BOTTOM OF OUR ECONOMY ARE BEING SUCKED

DRY BY THOSE AT THE VERY TOP OF THE INCOME AND WEALTH

PYRAMID.

OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS 60% OF ALL WEALTH HAS BEEN

FUNNELED TO THE TOP 1% OF THE POPULATION WHO HAVE

BECOME THE POLITICAL DONOR CLASS EVER BENDING THE CURVE

OF PRIVILEGE AND ADVANTAGE THEIR WAY AT THE EXPENSE OF

THE REST OF US.

WARREN BUFFET HAS SAID CLASS WARFARE IS GOING ON AND HIS

CLASS IS WINNING.

AS AN EXAMPLE, THE WALTON FAMILY, THE LARGEST EMPLOYER IN

THE NATION AND ONE OF THE WEALTHIEST FAMILIES IN AMERICA IS

AN OLYMPIC CLASS WELFARE CHAMP. RATHER THAN PAY THEIR

EMPLOYEES A LIVING WAGE THEY SHOW THEM HOW TO GET ONTO

PUBLIC ASSISTANCE.

EVERY WALMART EMPLOYEE IS SUBSIDIZED BY US TO THE TUNE

OF NEARLY $6000 A YEAR. EVERY STORE IS SUBSIDIZED BY A $

MILLION. THE TOTAL WALMART WELFARE BILL WE PAY WITH OUR

TAX DOLLARS IS $2 BILLION ANNUALLY.

WALMART IS NOT ALONE. THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY HAS

FOLLOWED THE LOW WAGE/PUBLIC ASSISTANCE STRATEGY, TOO.

AS THE TOP SQUEEZES THE WORKERS, ROB WITTMAN SEEMS TO

BELIEVE THEY ARE SLACKERS OF LOW CHARACTER ANYHOW WHO

DON’T DESERVE PUBLIC ASSISTANCE, AND DRUG TESTING BEFORE

THEY ARE GIVEN ANY BENEFITS IS OKAY, IN HIS VIEW. IF HE COULD,

I SUPPOSE HE WOULD ASK CHILDREN TO PEE IN A CUP BEFORE

THEY GET A SCHOOL LUNCH.

THE ECONOMIC POWER EQUATION HAS TILTED SO FAR IN FAVOR

OF EMPLOYERS THAT EMPLOYEES ARE BEING EXPLOITED AS

EXPENDABLE WAGE SLAVES. THAT POWER BALANCE NEEDS TO BE

RESTORED. LABOR IS NOT A COMMODITY.

I’M TIRED OF SUPPORTING WEALTHY WELFARE MOOCHERS. IT

NEEDS TO END. THEY CAN DAMN WELL START PAYING THEIR

EMPLOYEES A LIVING WAGE. THEY SHOULD HASTEN TO DO IT

VOLUNTARILY, BECAUSE THE SEEDS OF REVOLT OF THE WORKERS

ARE SPROUTING, AND WE NEED TO WATER THOSE SEEDS.

WE MUST EMPOWER WORKERS BY SUPPORTING UNIONS AND

THOSE TRYING TO UNIONIZE. THIS IS A NOBLE CALLING, AND,

FRANKLY, AN IMPORTANT WAY TO START REDUCING THE INCOME

AND WEALTH INEQUALITY THAT IS STRANGLING THE NATION’S

ECONOMIC PROGRESS.

HISTORY TEACHES A CLEAR LESSON: COLLECTIVE BARGAINING

CREATES A FAIR CLIMATE FOR MANAGEMENT AND WORKERS TO

COME TOGETHER. STRONG COMPANIES AND STRONG UNIONS GO

HAND IN HAND.

ALL AROUND US WE SEE THE CRUMBLING REMAINS OF THE

INVESTMENT IN INFRASTRUCTURE SPURRED LARGELY BY

PRESIDENT EISENHOWER. HE SAW THE ENDING OF A WAR IN

KOREA AND INVESTMENT IN AMERICA AS A MATTER OF NATIONAL

SECURITY—AND SO SHOULD WE.

INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS CREATE JOBS. THE PROJECTS

SHOULD BE UNDERTAKEN WITH PRIVATE/PUBLIC FUNDING

THROUGH AN INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT BANK AS

CONTAINED IN LEGISLATION HOUSE REPUBLICANS REFUSE TO

TAKE UP LIKE OTHER LEGISLATION AIMED AT INVESTING IN

AMERICA.

REPUBLICANS HAVE A WALL OF OBSTRUCTION ERECTED TO

PREVENT THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY OF AMERICA.

THEY BELIEVE THAT IF THE ECONOMY IS BAD ENOUGH, THE PUBLIC

WILL BLAME THE PRESIDENT AND THE POLITICAL SYSTEM WILL BE

PUT BACK IN THEIR HANDS.

I AM DEDICATED TO SEEING THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN BY

REMOVING ONE OBSTACLE TO PROGRESS—REPRESENTATIVE ROB

WITTMAN.

OUR SCHOOLS AND OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM HAVE BEEN UNDER

ATTACK BY THOSE WHO BELIEVE THERE IS PROFIT TO BE MADE IN

EDUCATION. PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS HAVE BEEN TREATED

WITH ARROGANCE, SCORN AND PUT IN A BOX LABELED “TEACH TO

THE TEST.”

WE HAVE BEEN TOLD TEACHERS’ UNONS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR

POOR SCHOOLS. REALLY?

THE “FOR PROFIT” SCHOOLS DON’T WANT TEACHERS WHO

BELONG TO UNIONS. “FOR PROFIT” SCHOOLS HAVE THEIR EYE

FIRST ON THE BOTTOM LINE. UNIONS PROTECT TEACHERS FROM

BEING JUST ANOTHER FACTOR OF PRODUCTION TO BE

SQUEEZED— JUST AS THEY WILL SQUEEZE OUT POORER

STUDENTS. PROFIT DEMANDS HIGH TEST SCORES—NO MATTER

HOW YOU GET THEM.

COLLEGE STUDENT INDEBTEDNESS IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE. IT IS

A TERRIBLE DAMPER ON THE WHOLE ECONOMY. FORTUNATELY,

SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN IS ADDRESSING THIS ISSUE WITH

LEGISLATION THAT WOULD ALLOW REFINANCING OF STUDENT

DEBT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MARKET INTEREST RATES JUST LIKE

YOU CAN REFINANCE A HOME MORTGAGE.

FRANKLY, I WOULD GO FURTHER. I BELIEVE THE MODEL OF

COLLEGE EDUCATION THAT RELIES ON STUDENT LOANS IS

FLAWED AND, WELL, IMMORAL. STUDENTS HAVE BECOME THE

PIPES OR STRAWS TO THE PUBLIC TREASURY BY WHICH THE

ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS SUCK UP THEIR SUSTENANCE. THAT IS

NOT A PRETTY IMAGE, BUT FAIRLY ACCURATE, I BELIEVE.

MANY YOUNG PEOPLE AND THEIR PARENTS ARE NOW

QUESTIONING THE WISDOM OF TAKING ON DECADES OF DEBT IN A

SLOW ECONOMY FOR AN EDUCATION WHEN DEBT IS LOCKED INTO

HIGH INTEREST RATES AND WHICH DEBT CAN’T BE DISCHARGED

THROUGH BANKRUPTCY. AS A NATION WE CAN’T AFFORD TO HAVE

OUR YOUTH BEGINNING TO THINK COLLEGE MAY NOT BE WORTH

IT—BECAUSE IT IS.

ONE HAS TO ASK WHETHER THE BUSINESS MODEL OUR COLLEGES

AND UNIVERSITIES HAVE DEVELOPED CAN BE SUSTAINED IF IT

PROFITS ITS GRADUATES ARE BURDENED BY DECADES OF DEBT.

IF THE NATION IS TO BE BEST SERVED, SOCIAL GOOD AND SOCIAL

MERIT NEED TO BE THE HIGHEST MEASURE WE REWARD.

THINK FOR A MOMENT THAT THE COMBINED SALARIES OF 350,000

PRE-SCHOOL TEACHERS IS LESS THAN THAT OF FIVE HEDGE FUND

MANAGERS. THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG ABOUT THIS

INVERSION OF VALUES.

SPEAKING OF INVERSION OF VALUES, LET ME SAY A WORD ABOUT

VETERANS AFFAIRS. OUR CONGRESSMAN NEEDS TO BE A TIGER

FOR THE INTERESTS OF VETERANS.

THE FACT IS WHILE THE NUMBER OF VETERANS IN THE GENERAL

POPULATION HAS DROPPED BY HALF SINCE THE 1970’S, THE

PERCENTAGE OF VETERANS IN CONGRESS HAS DROPPED BY 75%.

ONE MIGHT SAY WE HAVE A NEST OF CHICKEN HAWKS.

PERHAPS BECAUSE OF THAT THE CONGRESS PAYS LESS

ATTENTION TO VETERANS AFFAIRS THAN TO THE AFFAIRS OF

MONEY INTERESTS.

THE HOUSE VETERANS COMMITTEE IS MADE UP OF 25 MEMBERS—

MOST OF WHOM YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF. MANY OF THEM ARE

FRESHMAN. CONGRESSMAN WITTMAN IS NOT A MEMBER OF THIS

COMMITTEE DESPITE THE HUGE VETERAN POPULATION IN THIS

DISTRICT.

NOW, YOU SHOULD NOTE THE VA, AS A DEPARTMENT OF

GOVERNMENT, HAS NO LOBBYISTS TO MAKE DONATIONS TO

CAMPAIGN CHESTS.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE HOUSE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE

HAS 62 MEMBERS. LOTS OF MILITARY INDUSTRIAL CORPORATIONS

HAVE IMPORTANT MATTERS COMING BEFORE THIS COMMITTEE.

THEY HAVE LOTS OF LOBBYISTS WHO GIVE GENEROUSLY. THEY

LIKE TO HELP—AND EXPECT TO BE REMEMBERED WHEN THE TIME

COMES.

THE HOUSE FINANCE COMMITTEE HAS 61 MEMBERS. ALL THOSE

BANKS AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS EMPLOY WHAT MAY WELL BE

AN ARMY OF LOBBYISTS WHO ARE KEEN TO LOOK AFTER THE

MEMBERS WHO LOOK AFTER THEM.

I ASK YOU HOW COULD THE RECENT VA SCANDAL HAVE COME AS A

SURPRISE TO CONGRESS? VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS HAVE BEEN

SOUNDING THE WARNING FOR SEVERAL YEARS. HAVE NO

VETERANS BEEN WRITING CONGRESSMAN WITTMAN ABOUT THEIR

PROBLEMS? WAS HE ADVOCATING FOR THEM?

IF ELECTED, I PROMISE THERE WILL BE NO GREATER ADVOCATE IN

THE CONGRESS FOR OUR VETERANS. IF YOU WANT SOMEBODY

WHO UNDERSTANDS VETERANS’ NEEDS, THEN ELECT A VETERAN.

I’M ONE. I’M PROUD OF IT. AND, TOGETHER, MY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, WE CAN SCALE THE WALL IN THE OBSTACLE COURSE

YOU ENCOUNTER.

I KNOW I AM GOING INTO THIS CAMPAIGN AGAINST A

PROFESSIONAL POLITICIAN. HE HAS DONE LITTLE ELSE IN HIS LIFE.

CONGRESSMAN WITTMAN HAS BEEN ELECTED AND REELECTED

NUMEROUS TIMES.

AS AN OLD ADMIRAL IN WESTMORELAND COUNTY SAID IN A LETTER

TO THE EDITOR RECENTLY, HE HAS AMASSED SENIORITY.

YES, HE HAS. YOU KNOW, IT IS ONLY NECESSARY TO SIT THERE

FOR A WHILE FOR SENIORITY TO GROW, BUT A BODY AT REST

TENDS TO STAY AT REST. AT HIS FEET THE WAR CHEST HAS BEEN

AMASSING ALONG WITH SENIORITY. SPECIAL INTERESTS ADMIRE

SENIORITY AND ARE EVER MORE GENEROUS. THE CHORE AHEAD

OF US WILL BE LIKE UNSEATING JABBA THE HUTT, BUT, TOGETHER,

OUR TEAM CAN DO IT.

BUT, FULL STOP, WAIT JUST A MINUTE. WHERE IS AND WHAT IS THE

RECORD OF SERVICE TO CONSTITUENTS? WHAT HAS HAPPENED

TO HIS REMINDERS OF HIS FIRST DUTY. DOES HE HAVE THEM

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS? OR IS IT TIME FOR HIM TO BE

REPLACED?

HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAVE BUILT A WALL OF OBSTRUCTION TO

BLOCK PROGRESS IN AMERICA. ROB WITTMAN, HAS SACRIFICED

CONSTITUENT INTEREST TO THE SINGLE-MINDED GOAL OF

BUILDING THAT WALL.

BEHIND THAT WALL OF OBSTRUCTION, THEY TEAR THEIR HAIR AND

WAIL AT THE ADMINISTRATION, MOUTHING NON-STOP NONSENSE

CONSERVATIVE POSITIONS: LIKE

- “REPEAL OBAMACARE”

• “CAP AND TAX”

• “COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS”

• “PRIVATIZE SOCIAL SECURITY”

• “MARKET DRIVEN SOLUTIONS”

• SCIENCE IS A LIBERAL SCHEME

• WE’LL TAKE CARE OF WOMEN’S HEALTH.

• DON’T TAX THE JOB CREATORS

• THE ECONOMY GROWS BY TRICKLING DOWN FROM THE TOP

• IMMIGRATION REFORM—ARE YOU KIDDING!

WE NEED TO REPLACE CONGRESSMAN WITTMAN TO OPEN A HOLE

IN THAT OBSTRUCTIONIST WALL SO A HAND CAN BE EXTENDED

THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE TO INVITE COOPERATION IN

GETTING THE ECONOMY MOVING WITH JOBS, INFRASTRUCTURE,

RENEWAL, PUBLIC SCHOOL REVITALIZATION, AND STUDENT DEBT

RELIEF.

ELECTED OFFICIALS SHOULD CARRY A BAG OF STONES TO REMIND

THEM OF THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES.

DID CONGRESSMAN WITTMAN USE HIS TO BUILD THE WALL OF

OBSTRUCTION?

YOU SHOULD ASK CONGRESSMAN WITTMAN, “WHERE ARE YOUR

STONES?”

THANK YOU.
