What Some People Who Know Bill Say About Him

"I have known Bill for several years and admire his core values and beliefs.  Bill's beliefs on immigration policies, support for Medicare and Social Security and a system where employees are protected by unions are what we need."

Liane Kerry, Springfield, VA

"I first met Bill in 1972 when both of us were freshmen in college.  He used to spend some of his free time discussing various current political issues with his friends (and a few curious onlookers) at the Student Union.  As a 30-year retiree with the Federal government, and a 20-year retiree with the military, I love my country tremendously.  I know that, if Bill is elected, he will never forget who he is working for, and will not be a disappointment to anyone in the 17th Congressional District, regardless of party affiliation."

Michael Anderson, New York, NY
