We Are All In This Together

These days of upheaval and uncertainty remind me of a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who said:
“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected today and all those who will be affected before this crisis subsides, the individuals that now have the Coronavirus and those exposed, small business owners who depend on the daily cash flow of clients/customers, healthcare workers, first responders and others on the front line taking care of the sick and shut in. The health and economic fallout will be felt for years to come. These are challenging times and while we will bounce back, it will take us all working together to defeat this invisible universal enemy that knows no boundaries. Now is the time to put politics aside and work together to curtail the spread of this virus and to protect the health and economic security of all Americans. Our campaign will implement all recommended measures to do our part to flatten the curve. We will follow the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and curtail voter contact, implement social distancing guidelines, and suspend all planned events and travel. We will increase our communication with you through email updates, social media and by phone to provide helpful information and resources where we can and continue discussing the issues important to all of us, never more so than now. We urge you all to adhere to the guidelines laid out by the CDC to keep yourselves and our community safe. Resources / How you can help:
Together, we will get through this. Please reach out with questions or needs. Karl

ICYMI: Gentles Emphasizes Principles over Politics in Debate

In case you missed it, check out a short clip from last week's debate. Karl stood out from the pack by highlighting his record of getting things done for the economy, bringing jobs to the district and making a difference on education. Click on image below to watch video.   For Karl, "principles over politics" means something. Duty, honor, and country above self means something. Hard work, transparency, and character means something. These are values Karl carries with him every day. He believes that you deserve someone that truly and actually represents you, the people of District 6. He has the experience required to get things done. Karl made it clear that our choice is between someone who has proven results and candidates who have proven they cannot win. We need a candidate that can win in November and make some real progress on the issues we all believe in. We believe Karl is the right leader at the right time for this district. We can trust him to always put principles over politics and political ambition. If you agree that Karl is the best candidate for our district, please contribute to our campaign today.
