It is a rare moment when an editorial is printed unedited but you will be delighted to read mine in today's Free Lance Star, page A7 so here's a shout out for Conservative values!
GROUP CHAMPIONS ENTRPRENEURSHIP
I am MichaEl Hirsch and the volunteer chairman/woman for Americans For Prosperity- Virginia (AFP) in Fredericksburg!
AFP is a non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)3 organization which champions the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory restraint. Basically, we think that the YOU, not the government should get to decide how to spend your own, hard-earned money. ... The citizen activists – people like me -- are the heart and soul of AFP.
We organize events, write letters to the editor, and petition our lawmakers to uphold freedom and prosperity. Americans for Prosperity has more than 2.3 million activists in all 50 states and 34 state chapters and affiliates…and it’s growing more and more everyday!
As a county/city chair, I’ve committed to mobilizing citizens to advocate free markets at all levels of government. I’m excited to be able to organize in our community – and I’m confident that we’ll be making a difference once neighborhood block at a time!
I’m so excited for the opportunity to defend economic freedom right here in our community – I’m volunteering because I care about the future of where we live…will you join me?
The Rev. MichaEl Hirsch
