But I am most proud of my new Congressman Larry Kissell. I have walked the halls of Congress, visited members, and even marched on Washington D.C. to protest injustice, promote equality in the workplace, and against unfair trade policies.
Most freshman members of Congress accomplish very little during their first term. They spend the first two years learning the ropes. But Congressman Kissell already knew a lot about those ropes as a former textile worker turned school teacher. I like the idea that we have a middle-class working person representing us in Congress. And as he represents us he must maintain that status. He has already gotten an amendment passed that insured some Americans will have a good job into the future. The Kissell Amendment has a positive affect on the textile industry. Then he had an amendment passed through the Agriculture Committee that will insure that farmers are represented on commodities boards. Richmond County has a large agricultural footprint.
My continued prayer for my Congressman is that as an educator he will work to improve our Public School System so that all children in America will receive a World Class Education.
