My inspiration to become politically active is a byproduct of growing up with a father who ran for office several times, and lost, but with perseverance and passion, he became a State Rep and has been serving for 14 years. My experience of participating, volunteering, and supporting his efforts for the last 25 years has inspired me to want to get more involved in the community that has been so good to me. Regardless of how busy we are in our personal lives, I believe that we can not just sit back and wait for change to happen. We have to be part of the community, listen to our friends and neighbors, and be creative in our ideas so, together, we can make a change for the better.
