Why Should You Vote For Me?
You should vote for me because I am a great balance of work, professional achievement, community support and family…all of which combine to make me who I am today.
Accessory of Empowerment
The accessory that most empowers me is my wedding ring. I certainly do not mean this as a derogatory thing or a possession of power over someone. I have been fortunate to be married for almost nine years to an amazing woman who has supported me in law school, the bar exam, beginning my career as an attorney and opening my own office. The wedding ring that I wear every day lets me know that I am never alone and that my wife is always there to talk to when things are tough at work or with a trial. She has stood behind me in trial preparation, trial wins and losses. I could not have made it anywhere close to where I am today without her support. She has also given me two amazing children. When trying to think of the best way to describe why my wedding ring empowers me, I was reminded of the cartoon Captain Planet, where each member of the Planeteers wore a specific ring and when all of the rings combined, they could take on anything because of the support of the other members. In a way, having my wife as my fellow “Planeteer” I have been able to concur so many things.
Shoes of Empowerment
I have chosen athletic shoes because exercise and sports have been very important in instilling in me the discipline that I needed to reach my goals. One of my proudest accomplishments has been raising my two children and being able to play with them as well as coach my daughter’s soccer and softball teams. The athletic shoes also represent the networking I have been able to achieve through the Greene County Bar Association’s softball teams. Plus, they are way more comfortable than the dress shoes I wear on a daily basis.
Outfit of Empowerment
I have chosen a suit because as an attorney, I wear a suit most every day. I spend most of my time in court protecting my clients. The journey to become an attorney was extremely difficult and I had to work very hard to graduate law school, pass the bar exam and build my practice as an attorney. I believe the suit empowers me because it is a sign of the hard work and dedication that was required to get me where I am today. I also believe that the suit shows the support system of family and friends that have guided me through this journey.
