"Let there be no illusions about the difficulty and long road ahead of us on this campaign for TIM TOM for School Board. As a young candidate, I am pushing against the wind. But I will be a leader on the issues and not only a follower. That is why I will run hard for this office, not because it is easy but because it is hard. This election is a challenge that I am willing to accept, one I am unwilling to postpone and one which I intend to win. "
