Due to family health concerns, I am stepping down as Operations Manager for Pantano for Congress. This has been a very tough decision to make. I'm certain all of you understand that God, Country, and Family have been and forever shall be my life. But don't think I'm gone forever....you aren't that fortunate. I will be attending as many events as I possibly can as a volunteer and in the future I plan on returning to Pantano for Congress.
So on that note, it is my pleasure to announce to you that Benjamin Smith is assuming the duties of Field Operations Manager and Gerry Owens is assuming the duties of Office Operations Manager. Benjamin, Gerry and I have worked together for the past two months and they are awesome! They have great operational backgrounds and I know you will enjoy working with them as well. Feel free to stop by the office to visit them soon!
I am still 100% committed to Ilario and the campaign and will do whatever I can to help.
Thank you all for your continued support to Ilario and the campaign...... this is one Marine that must be in Washington to preserve the moral fiber of this great country, to ensure our economy returns to the prosperity that hard working people deserve, and to make what is wrong RIGHT! With YOUR help God's will be done and Ilario will be the next Congressman from the 7th Congressional District.
