I am very angry

I’m angry that Bobby Newport would hold this town hostage and threaten to leave if you don’t give him what he wants.

It’s despicable

Corporations are not allowed to dictate what a city needs

That power belongs to the people

Bobby Newport and his daddy would like you to think it belongs to them

I love this town, and when you love something you don’t threaten it, you don’t punish it, you fight for it, you take care of it, you put it first.

As your city councillor I will make sure no one takes advantage of Pawnee.

If I seem to passionate it’s because I care.

If I come on strong it’s because I feel strongly, and if I push to hard it’s because things aren’t moving fast enough.

This is my home, you are my family, and I promise you, I’m not going anywhere.
