My name is John Emmons, and I’m running for Congress.
My background is in business. Balancing budgets. Continually improving. Leading hundreds of people. Adapting to an ever-changing economy.
But 12 years ago – worried about the direction of our country and the world we would leave to our children and grandchildren - I stepped forward to become more involved in politics as a volunteer and leader for causes I believe in.
Today, the foundations of our country are being attacked and undermined by a large, distant, over-reaching federal bureaucracy and elements in our society with strong anti-American views. So, it’s time to take another bold step forward. That’s why I am running for Congress.
We need to protect and preserve the pillars of America: Individual liberty, personal responsibility, and opportunity - the freedom to pursue one’s dreams.
I grew up on a small farm. We worked hard for what we had. We were taught important lessons by our parents: In America, we are blessed with freedom. In return, we must take responsibility for ourselves and our families. Work hard. Look out for our neighbors. Give back to our communities.
I hope you agree with me and will join our campaign. Together, we can reclaim the American dream and the promise of America.
