Who’s the Boss?

I think that there is a fair amount of confusion in congress, as well as many other elected officials, as to who their boss is. It seems that many of them, including my opponent in 2018, seems to believe that it’s the party chair, or maybe the Speaker of the House in the case of the House of Representatives.

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,
