Gallagher For Congress 2012!

Dear Friends,

Tonight I announce my candidacy for the KS 3rd District U.S. House of Representatives congressional seat in 2012. Why would I take such a bold step? I take this leap today, because I believe Washington needs a true outsider to shake up the Congress! It is time for the people to have more say, and the party establishment to have less. It is time to take the money out of politics, and put back the ideas. It is time to stop the hatred, and start the cooperation. I have a plan to help the people take back Congress, and it will start right here in Kansas.

I believe firmly that it is the responsibility of the government to protect, empower, and serve the citizens of the United States. Those who are elected to public office have a sacred duty to uphold the values set forth in the Constitution and to represent the people with the utmost dignity, integrity, and honor. I have lived my life by the values of honesty, respect, and understanding, and it is those values that I intend to bring to the voters of Kansas' 3rd District, and to Washington when I am elected in 2012.

Over the next few months I will roll out my campaign, and build my platform from the ground up. I have some solid ideas on some issues, but overall I will be taking a nuanced approach to issues. Most importantly, I intend to listen, and I want to hear what you have to say. I hope to work together with my friends and the entire community to generate ideas, to build a consensus campaign, and take back Congress in 2012! Please join with me to help bring a new understanding to Washington, starting right here in the great state of Kansas! Go America!
