In 2017 I know many of you are disillusioned, even disgusted, with the current state of politics and our current political leaders. We bitch about it on social media, go down rabbit holes of despair on the internet, complain to our friends and family...but outside of that, many of us have not yet done much more than just that.
However, one of my good friends, Antonio Delgado, was moved to greater action. Antonio put his thriving career as a corporate attorney on hold to focus on doing his part in the area in upstate NY where he and his wife @laceyschwartz live and are both from, specifically to a congressional district that had flipped red in November, and has set about running for that seat and returning it to the blue it has been for 8 years during Obama's term.
I'm bowled over by Antonio's commitment and by his sacrifice. Offering up a handful of his peak earning years and more than a little personal privacy for the betterment of our nation is really an immolation that cannot be understated. So I'm doing what I can to help support Antonio in his bid, by donating money, as well as my time, energy and skill set, to his campaign. And I encourage you to do the same - talking and tweeting is not sufficient. 2018 elections are just over a year away. Let's put people in office that represent our interests, and represent us.
