After significant discussions and research, the time has come for me to speak up about the past primaries, my opponent and election integrity.  Please click here to review my open letter to the media.  You'll be hearing quite a bit more from me in the upcoming weeks; this should get interesting as the ultimate goals are to analyze and correct this broken process.  Thank you for your patience and support.

To all my supporters, thank you for your patience.  Since the primaries I haven’t made any official statements as there have been many “behind the scenes” issues that continue to this day.  At the appropriate time I’ll be at liberty to discuss further.

What I’d like everyone to know right now is the following:  I immigrated to the USA from Poland over two decades ago to pursue the American dream.  Nothing ever comes easy, but I know that dream is still there for everyone.  There will be no backing down to anything or anyone.  I will continue to fight for WE THE PEOPLE to make a real difference in our community, our state, our party and our great nation. Thank you again for all your support, and let’s all continue to look towards a brighter future.

I sincerely thank all of you for your support throughout my campaign and my apologies for lack of immediate updates.  It’s been a hectic past few weeks and a tough evening last night, so severe exhaustion finally needed to be addressed!  I will be back in touch soon with a full statement on the results and plans moving forward.

I’m heartbroken to report that my father Zbigniew passed away the beginning of this week. He was 76 years old and my lifelong best friend. I am heading back to Poland tomorrow for the funeral and to help with all the arrangements. My current campaign commitments will continue through my representatives while I’m overseas and I will personally resume involvement upon my return (which as it stands now should be May 15th). My family and I sincerely appreciate your understanding and support during these difficult times.
