This 4th of July, I proudly join millions of Americans in celebrating the birth of a nation built on hope and opportunity. On this date in history our Founding Fathers chartered our path by declaring independence from tyranny. Since that fateful day, generations have come and gone, but the principles of freedom and democracy that inspired our Founding Fathers have withstood the test of time.
As a proud American, I believe our nation’s unwavering commitment to the principles of freedom and democracy is not only at the heart of our nation’s foundation, it is embedded in the hearts of the American people.
This Independence Day, beyond being grateful to live in a nation worthy of such devotion, I will also cherish our capacity as Americans to come together as one family to celebrate the birth of our great nation. As you gather with family and friends to celebrate this holiday, let us remember how we blessed we are and thank those who have fought honorably for the principles of freedom and democracy. On this special day, please join me in thanking our Veterans and active Service Members who have given selflessly so that you and I can enjoy the fruits of our Founding Fathers.
I wish you a happy, safe 4th of July!
Senator, Thirty-Fourth Senate District
