Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I have no hesitation in taking on the types of fights that "politicians" tend to leave alone. My good name is more important to me than anything else, and I will never sell out the people! I am a leader, NOT a politician, and when I know I'm fighting for the right thing, I don't back down. I have gone against the most powerful group in the state, by myself, in an effort to save the oyster, shrimp, and crabbers from the disaster that will be the experimental diversions. I am the only member of the House or Senate to defend the people from this. I continue to fight at the Federal level, because its the right thing to do.
