Voice: We need to elect one of our own to Congress

October 30, 2001

I've been catching on-line all the bickering of who will be our next legislator. At this point it doesn't matter.

What the people need is someone home-grown, someone who will listen to us, someone who cares and just doesn't come out in the paper to get those brownie points at the end, someone who talks in plain English and doesn't talk in fancy legislative terms (Spanish is a plus).

Whether or not it will be a Mexican-American, I don't know. Whether there are talks

about one, there is. Whether they'll run, I don't know. But the desire, I know there is.

I recommend to anyone who is contemplating running for a position to forget about the money. It don't matter if you're white, black, blue or tan, just

follow your gut. Trust me, you'll be ahead of the game and soon enough you have people following you.

So Americans, patriots, mavericks, Mexican-Americans, Hispanics, people of the Valley, I think it's time to elect one of our own, either Democrat, Republican or Green. Heck if they're from the Valley, that's a step toward the right direction. Just run baby, run!
