Dear friends, We realize we are living in a time in history of great opportunity, yet with extremely scary possibilities. I trust that you and I share a deep concern to do what we can, on our watch, to push back against the forces of evil at work around us. You're probably aware of my efforts in recent years to inform and activate friends who share our values, working together to support faith, family and the precious freedoms we've received from those who gave their all to hand these freedoms to us. I am committed to do all I can to be a good steward of what we've received.
Now we see unprecedented attacks on people of faith, and the values we hold most dear. You and I know it's vital to elect leaders who will do what's right in this challenging time, so I've been working hard to help do that, and to influence leaders who share at least some of our values, calling on them to do what's right. That all takes time, which has been the challenging part.
The growth of big government in our lifetimes has undermined many of our resources, and our ability to earn a living. In my lifetime I've weathered the impact of bad public policy on real estate, small business, and in recent years on my insurance business. I've also been trying to help family members with serious health issues, which has been extremely challenging, yet also such a great blessing.
Right now I need to ask for some extra help to "keep the lights on" here while I rebuild my insurance business, catch up on some important matters, and pray about what's next. Trusted friends are encouraging me to run for the legislature again, in the seat recently vacated by my former opponent in the 2015 special election. You may have seen the news coverage of his resignation under censure for sexual harassment. Many people feel encouraged that this is a moment in history we need to seize, as the differences between left & right on the political spectrum have been revealed like never before. If I'm to run, I need time to get prepared, as I've been investing my time in the recent city election, long-term community volunteer commitments, some businesses which have not yet paid me, and family health issues.
If you feel led to help, any size gift will be greatly appreciated, and will immediately be applied to basic, practical needs here at home.

Many blessings ahead!
