Back at you, my friend. It's great to hear that you are "taking life in full measure". You deserve no less. I couldn't agree more with your assessment as to how life does fly by too fast ... but it sure beats the alternative. Stay well & prosper!!!
I pray that you and yours are doing fine. I am considering running for political office and seek the endorsement of the Medical Community. I would like to share why I am considering running for Maryland State Delegate. Since I must limit my daytime meetings outside of work, I thought that it would be better to initially express my reasons via e-mail and schedule a discussion at your pleasure:
Other than what is expressed at www.thisguyisreal.com, here are some other reasons why I am considering running for Maryland State Delegate:
In my neighborhood I have observed problems that should be fixed and I will help improve The State of Maryland for my family, friends and neighbors.
We need more technology jobs in Maryland by investing in Human Capital and drawing more large-scale employers to the I-270 technology corridor. Now that the ICC is approved (rather we supported or not), we need to make best use of it.
People can call me and I will look into to their concerns and either fix their problems, or start working towards solutions, and honestly tell them what is being done.
I will act on the behalf of my constituents, in the Maryland 20th Legislative District, not toward my own personal agendas.
The most effective way we can get our voices heard is to run for office.
OUR forefathers' legacies demand that I run.
Many disenfranchised and under represented groups in Maryland have lost faith in OUR political process.
I am considering running for delegate because I believe in America's Founders' fundamental ideals of freedom with compassion; preserving those rights and privileges considered essential by the general society, including civil liberty; and a common-sense oriented government.
I believe that we do need a democratically elected government to maintain a waste-free and open society.
The growing political climate and runaway spending in our state is taking its toll on every Marylander. Implementing Lean Management best practices and streamlining, versus unreasonable tax HIKES, will solve our problems. It's time for a change.
The more I look at the incumbent's record(s), the more it seems that he or she is out of touch with the traditional values of the district. He or she doesn't represent the majority of us in the 20th district.
Running for office gives me the soapbox to voice my opinions. In fact this forum is one of the few settings where I can exercise effective "free speech".
I have heard the expression "We have come a long way, but we have MORE WORK to do" many times. Maryland needs at least one person whom is ready to do MORE WORK.
Please, feel free to forward this e-mail as you professionally see fit. I hope to hear from you soon.
With Warmest Regards,
