It Starts With One Person
The election is just days away, and I continue to be overwhelmed by your support and encouragement. At #LangevinListens coffee hours around the Second District, and in all of my travels, I've heard from constituents about the important issues that face our nation. We talk about equal pay for women, making college more affordable, immigration reform, and workforce development. We share ideas about tax reform and income inequality. We don't always agree, but it has been an insightful, engaging, and respectful exchange of ideas.
These conversations inspire me. You inspire me.
And it is feeling as inspired, passionate, and enthusiastic as I have ever been that I ask for your support on November 8. I want to return to Washington to work on the issues we've talked about, and I am humbled by the support of those who believe I am the right person for the job. I've been honored with many endorsements this year, from the AFL-CIO, the Rhode Island Building and Construction Trades Council, the Human Rights Campaign, Clean Water Action, and many more. Just recently, the Providence Journal also endorsed my candidacy.
This last point is of particular importance to me, as we face a time of extreme turmoil and partisanship in our country. Making a difference starts with a single person. It starts with one person who is willing to talk, to debate, and to keep an open mind; a person who wants to keep listening and learning and building relationships so that we can find common ground.
I have always tried to be that person. I hope you will consider supporting me on Tuesday so I can continue to be that person, fighting to make a different for you, and for all Rhode Islanders.
