Introduction I am the oldest of nine children with nine children of my own. As much as I love sports (Marquette, Auburn, NY Jets and Islanders and Houston Astros) and politics, my family and my faith (Catholic) are the most important things to me. For most of my life, I really enjoyed running and winning political campaigns. Until I turned 50 I would still pull some all nighters as election day approached, but decided when Dave Brat defeated Eric Cantor that would be my last Election Day All-Nighter. Marquette taught me to work hard - I had 18 credits and three jobs totally 60 hours a week my last 3 semesters (intern with US Senator, sports desk of Milwaukee Journal and news editor at Marquette Tribune) and I've never slowed down. I love living in Auburn (top place to live in US by some accounts) and family in Virginia, but also love to get to upstate New York with my Dad's side of the family, and truly love to get back to Milwaukee, and have adopted Cleveland as another city I love. Approaching 50 I decided to give up campaigns and serve as ED of www.takeback.org, which has given me the wonderful chance to built State Chapters throughout the US.
