My Campaign Plans for 2017 – Getting to know each other

Shawn for Congress

Welcome to 2017 everyone. Happy New Year!

Campaign Plans 2017 – While 2017 isn’t technically a campaign year, I feel the need as a newcomer to work on getting my name out. I want to learn as much as I can about the people in the district I am running for.

As part of my campaign plans, during the next few months I will be posting reasons why I am running for congress. If you have not been following along with the campaign, I am running for the 5th Congressional district in Wisconsin for the US House of Representatives. One of the things I feel is most important about running for, and becoming a congressman, is ensuring that I am listening to my constituents. To do this, I am going to spend the month listing what and where I stand on several issues. I encourage you to not just read the posts, but comment as well. The only way to understand each other is to have an open and civil discussion.

I don’t expect you to agree with every thing I say, nor will I agree with everything you say. However, I can assure you though, I will always respect your right to say it. I want to find a common ground on as many topics as I can with all of you. When I am elected, I will continue this practice and ensure that my voting record matches where we come together. I greatly value our differences because I truly believe that those differences are what makes this country amazing. We just need to find a way to reach an accord that provides the best solution for the majority of the country.

We have become divided. I know alone I cannot fix that. The only thing I can do is listen to understand and vote accordingly. Please check back daily during this month and be sure to comment. Communication from you is greatly valued and I truly want to hear it.

Thank you,
