President’s Message – May 2017

Trump’s first 100 days are now fodder for the history books, and there are plenty of different opinions on just how effective these first days have been.   Frankly, I don’t think they are nearly as important as the other 2,820 days of his presidency will be.

You  managed to speak about the issues that Americans want to see our government address and you spoke of the need to work together, across the aisle, for a better future for all Americans and, most especially, for our children. You talked in great detail about creating a better system of health insurance that will be less expensive and more available...
