Bisso supports military

I served my country proudly for 26 years as a member of the United States Air Force. During that time, I had to give up a few personal freedoms while I wore the uniform. One such freedom was the right to openly support a candidate who was running for public office. Regulations prohibited me from attending a candidate’s speech while in uniform. I was also not allowed to place a bumper sticker on a personal vehicle, and I could not place a sign in my yard showing my support. I fully understand the reasons for these measures and followed them without hesitation.

I now live in the civilian community and the rules have changed for me. It has taken four years, but I finally met an outstanding person and candidate that I want to publicly support, Karen Bisso. My reasons for doing this are simple.

I have seen Karen work at numerous Wounded Warrior events with our returning servicemen and women. I have seen her roll up her sleeves and play side by side with their children at these events. She is kindhearted, smart, genuine and extremely knowledgeable on the issues at hand.

She supports our military, their families and our local communities. I know she is ready for the challenge, and I want to openly support her for state Assembly. I do not just give this support easily. Karen has earned it! I hope she earns yours too.
