I’m proud of the work I’ve done in Congress so far. From authoring Cut, Cap, and Balance to advocating for term limits, I think I’ve done exactly what I said I would do when voters first sent me to Washington in 2011.
I’ve worked hard to keep folks back home informed of what’s going on and try to explain what I’m doing to fix the problems. I’ve hosted over 50 live in-person town hall meetings, conducted dozens of telephone town hall meetings, and I do Q&A sessions on Facebook just about weekly. I’ve always thought the way to keep from “going Washington” is to stay in touch with the people who sent me there.
I’ve also tried to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars and that’s why I’ve never taken a single taxpayer funded overseas trip. I run my office like I run my household, and that’s how I’ve been able to return thousands of dollars to the U.S Treasury over the years.
Last but not least, I’m proud of the work we’ve done to help folks across the 5th District get the benefits and help they deserve — especially our veterans. I don’t want to make a career of being a Congressman, but I’m not ready to come home just yet. I ask for your vote on Tuesday.
