David W. Thompson for U.S. Congress
House of Representatives 13th district
Why voters should vote for me:
Like many citizens in our community, I’ve grown tired of the rights of our citizens (quietly and deliberately) being taken away through various legislation, slipped right past us.
After speaking with a few trusted advisers, to let them know I was considering running for office, I received one response that convinced me to accept the challenge: “I think you’d have a really good chance at winning, but I hope you’ve plenty of money”. The notion that a citizen must have significant finances in order to be deemed a legitimate candidate needs to cease, immediately. Corporate sponsorship is NOT what the Founding Fathers had in mind for our future, and Americans are fed up with shady politics undermining us with these all too common, “pay-to-play” practices. One major reason the political foundation of America is crumbling, is because we stopped endorsing and supporting REAL people to represent REAL people. What happened to FOR the People BY the People?
Seeing as how the current administration has absolutely FAILED the people of this Country, I saw no choice but to step up and make a difference. Now, enough is enough. It’s time to help these turtles off their fence posts, take back our communities and get real citizens back in to fix what the career politicians have broken. Our Country deserves legislators who can honestly represent us with transparency and without any underlying agendas.
I’m thankful and proud to be a multi-generational Mooresville native who genuinely cares about my hometown, and always will because my heritage here runs very deep. My Great-Grandfather farmed, fed and played a large role in developing much of South Iredell into what it is today. As far as I’m concerned, I may have an opponent in this race, but I have no competition when it comes to my willingness and commitment to serve my community as your Representative in Raleigh. I may not have the finances to back a fancy campaign, but my intentions are genuine and I can look myself in the mirror every day and know I am not a sell-out. To the voters of Mooresville and South Iredell: I can honestly say that a vote for me IS a vote for you..
