Your Obedient Servant

Dear TX-26:

Sitting here in a quiet living room, Avett Brothers playing on the turntable. Having a calm moment after a really long weekend of campaign events and meetings.

There are some things I want to get off my chest and just put out there. How better to do that than on the internet? ;) Feeling a bit nervous about this post, so go easy on me.

So here’s my confession (get ready, its juicy):

I love you. I want what’s best for you. I want you to have the opportunity to pursue your ambitions, goals, and dreams.

You’re my people, and you deserve a government that not only works, but also works for you. You deserve to experience all the benefits of the American dream — that from your hard work will come success. You deserve to have the opportunity to raise a family, if you so choose, to have employment opportunities that give you the chance to thrive, and to provide the best education available for your children, without taking on a second mortgage to pay for it.

You deserve to get the healthcare you need, when and where you need it, without going bankrupt in the process. You deserve to reap the benefits of a growing economy, and not spend your days paying taxes to fund tax breaks for those at the top.

But most of all, you deserve a true representative. Someone who advocates for you; who will stand in the halls of Congress, and loudly speak truth to power. Someone who will fight to get dark money out of politics and to impose term limits on Congress.

I am determined to be that person, and to prove to you that my heart is true. Are you seeing it?

This is why I hold office hours every weekend in a coffee shop or other public space somewhere in the district. Because you need every opportunity to vet me — to confirm that I am what I say I am — an ethical, empathic leader, willing to dedicate myself and my time to you. Because as a voter myself, it’s what I would want if I were in your shoes.

If I haven’t proven it to you yet, I am committed to keep trying. If I have, please help us move this campaign to the next level and consider making a donation.

I love this country. And I’m determined to bring it back from the brink.

I have the honor to be your obedient servant, W. Fisher.
