With the ever-increasing violence both inside and outside of our borders, I cannot take the risk to send anyone else to Congress other than Representative Steve Knight. Many of our current and hopeful leaders preach the need for change and politicize societal problems for their own gain. However, we need leaders who have been on the front line and can translate their real-world experience into common-sense policies that address modern-day problems. Steve Knight is a U.S. Army veteran and served 18 years in the Los Angeles Police Department, thus protecting our citizens both at home and abroad. Steve Knight not only talks the talk, but also walks the walk. As a Democrat, I am done voting along party lines and will put my family first. The security of our children is more sacred and important than political affiliations. I urge my fellow constituents in the 25th Congressional District to vote Steve Knight for Congress – someone who has put his life on the line for us and will continue to do so for years to come as our congressman in Washington D.C.
