I’m back temporarily with an announcement about my husband Eric. About a week ago he announced that he is running for US Congress! I am so excited and proud (I keep using those words, but it’s true)!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with these proceedings, I’ll explain a little about the job itself. As a congressman, Eric would represent the 4th district of Pennsylvania in congress. That is York and Adams Counties, and parts of Dauphin and Cumberland Counties. The House of Representatives has 435 voting representatives that work towards passing federal legislation.
In order to be a congressman, a person has to be at least twenty-five years old. They must also obtain 1,000 signatures in a period of three weeks in order to get their name on the primary ballot. That means we have until Valentine’s Day to get our signatures. The primary is on April 24th, so until then Eric, his team of amazing workers, and I are going to be extremely busy. This blog may slow down a bit more, but hopefully I will be back with a post at least every week or two.
If you live in the fourth congressional district of PA or nearby and you would like to volunteer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can visit his website here if you want to check out his platform. I have every confidence that Eric will make an amazing congressman. Not only is he extremely intelligent and well-versed in politics, he has integrity and humility. Those are necessary qualities in a good leader.
