“With the encouragement of family and friends, I am announcing that I will run for State Senate District 20.
Bethany and I, along with our kids, are excited about the journey ahead. We ask that you will pray for us during this time, that we may always represent our community with honor and integrity.
We also ask for your support and guidance along the way.
I believe that you know who I am and you know my heart. I would be honored and humbled to serve our community as State Senator. Thank you for your encouraging words and actions.
There will be a public kickoff celebration towards the end of next week that I would love to have you all attend. Details of the time and place will be updated later this week.
Again, thank you for your prayers and support!”
