Douglas MacKinnon

Voters and all Americans have rightly become cynical about politics, but as I have witnessed, while steeped in cutting edge technology, Francis is also someone who believes in working and campaigning the old fashioned way as well. That is, employing retail politics when possible to reach one constituent at a time: a formula to date which is connecting to people from every economic, social, and ethnic background.

As the complexion of the nation changes, it’s critically important that we ignore all who say we must change our values to reach a more diverse community. Nonsense. Nothing could be further from the truth.

At the end of the day, most Americans from every walk of life and ethnic background want and in fact are searching for, elected-officials wedded to principles and values.

Francis Suarez is one of those public servants. His time is now.

Who, in and out of the political establishment, will recognize that?
