Republican Oath

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.
I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.

Thanks Steven Xiarhos for sharing this and we will share it too. Grateful that Tim Whelan is on this committee. He has the experience to bring a voice of reason to the process. Also Grateful that we Cape Codders have him on our team.Friends, I am proud to announce that House Minority Leader Brad Jones has selected me to serve as his appointee to the Conference Committee that will work to resolve differences between the House and Senate versions of H.4886 / S.2820- the policing reform bills both recently engrossed in the House and Senate. I look forward to the work ahead with my legislative colleagues and while I cannot make any promises of what the end result will be, I can promise you that I will bring every one of my 26 years of first-hand law enforcement experience to the table for our discussions and will give this important assignment everything I have. It is important to everyone that we do this right. Thank you for your support and friendship. A link to both engrossed versions of the bills is below:
