The bible recounts stories of ordinary individuals whom God chose to do extraordinary tasks; God chose young David to fight Goliath, the Philistine giant. The biblical account of David and Goliath is a lesson of courage, faith and overcoming what seems to be impossible. I believe God has chosen me for such a task.
For far too long there has been inadequate representation of Mississippians. According to U.S. News & World Report, Mississippi ranks 50th in healthcare, 46th in education, 48th in economy, 49th in opportunities, 49th in infrastructure, and 45th in fiscal stability. A staggering twenty-seven (27) percent of Mississippians live below the poverty level. Simply put, our elected officials have failed us. The good news is, we can stop this destructive trend. We can put the leadership of this state in the hands of a person who genuinely cares about the people and our quality of life. I am committed to be that person. I will respect your vote and be your voice! Working together we can put Mississippi on a path of success. I’m asking for your support in creating A Better Mississippi for All the people. Here in Mississippi. The time is Now.
As I think about the challenges we Mississippians have endured, I know there are workable solutions. I believe and will fight for Healthcare for All, Quality Education, Criminal Justice Reform, Economic Stability, Restore our Failing Infrastructure, Environmental Protection.
To be successful in this endeavor, it will take a very strong and dedicated grass roots mobilization. We believe the voters of this state will step forward with my family in a united volunteer effort. As you may have guessed my immediate family is already hard at work building winning strategies for a successful campaign. They have volunteered to help knock on doors, place yard signs and of course, participate in any upcoming events.
With thousands of brochures to purchase, hundreds of yard signs to order, scores of radio ads to place, and 82 counties to cover, we need your help. I am turning to the people who have known me the longest, who know me best, and humbly inviting you to get involved in this campaign and help make a difference.
Your early contribution made payable to “VPW 4 Governor” will give our race a tremendous boost right out of the starting block.
Your gift of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or $1,000 will help raise the vital initial financial support needed to successfully launch this campaign.
Our goal is to raise $500,000 by March 1, 2019 and we humbly ask for your support in helping us rise to this great challenge.
Thank you in advance for your encouragement, generous support, and prayers. Bennie and I are both grateful for your support and wish you and your family blessings!
