Letter to the Editor: Send Mike Gallagher to Washington

I met Mike Gallagher several weeks ago and was impressed. He listens. He is thoughtful. Mike Gallagher has shown consistent leadership. During college, after joining the Marine Corps, and since then, Mike has demonstrated the leadership and national security experience we need in Washington. Too often we elect people that become another cog in the bureaucracy of DC. I’m convinced Mike Gallagher will spend his time there representing all of us in Northeast Wisconsin, and will continue the fight to defend our homeland.

When I hear him speak, Mike reminds me of a quote from the movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. In the movie, Jimmy Stewart’s character says, “Boys forget what their country means by just reading ‘The Land of the Free’ in history books. When they get to be men, they forget even more. Liberty’s too precious a thing to be buried in books…Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I’m free to think and to speak.” I believe that is what Mike Gallagher believes and that he will fight for. Above all else, that’s why I’ll be voting to send Mike Gallagher to Washington.
