Endorsing an Ordinary Citizen

Big news for Upstate New York tea partiers and ordinary citizens!  Patrick Ziegler, a grassroots candidate for New York’s 20th Congressional District, received an important endorsement on Monday night.  The Warren County Republican Committee endorsed Patrick.  Why is this a big deal?  It’s the first county to endorse him in the 10-county district.  Why is it surprising?  Check out this article and this blog post from the Post-Star.  One of Patrick’s opponents hails from Warren County, and conventional wisdom might expect the nod to go his way, not to Patrick.  That’s why we should always take conventional wisdom with a grain of salt.

I am a big supporter of Patrick.  That is because he is an ordinary citizen like so many of us.  He is the political outsider looking to represent the citizens in the 20th District.  He is not looking for a career in politics or in Washington DC, but he feels called to bring the right change to Capitol Hill and true representation to the 20th District.

Finally, to ensure full disclosure, I am documenting the fact that I am volunteering for Patrick’s campaign in a PR role.  I am not being paid, but I will do my best to help send an ordinary citizen to Congress.

    I believe that we desperately need to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference in our lives, our communities and our world.

    Why not be Ordinary?

    Why not make a difference?

    Why not be Ordinary AND make a difference?
