PR #1 - Maddox Addresses Democratic National Convention

 

Image result for tony evers speaking

 

Pittsburgh - Mississippi Congressman Judson Maddox (D-MS-01) addressed the Democratic National Convention in Pittsburgh. Congressman Maddox expressed his endorsement of fellow congressman John White before using the rest of his time to advocate for veteran issues. Reviews of the speech indicated that it was both effective in highlighting why John White is the stronger candidate for leadership on veteran issues and for its change in pace in highlighting the need to address crucial issues facing veterans regardless of party. His full address can be read below:

 

Quote

Good evening Pittsburgh! It’s an honor to be here tonight speaking before a convention of fellow patriots with a love for this magnificent country! I am pleased to be here tonight in support of this country’s next commander-in-chief, John White!

 

While folks from the great state of Mississippi may know who I am, for those that don’t, my name is Judson Maddox and I am a congressman running for the U.S. Senate. While my time in Congress has been dedicated to fighting for the people of Mississippi’s 1st Congressional District, the title that I find to be infinitely more important to who I am as a man is a proud veteran! I may win my election to the U.S. Senate this November or I may come up short but my time serving this country in our armed forces made me the man I am today and nothing can take that away from me! I know that when I reach the pearly gates, superficial titles mean nothing to our creator compared to what we did on this Earth with the time we had!

 

The cause of veteran advocacy is one that I believe is paramount in importance. The bipartisan passage of the Veterans Affairs Department Act was something that all Americans should be proud of but now is not the time to rinse our hands off and place the issue at the back-burner of American discourse! Current estimates indicate that 230,000 to 750,000 veterans are currently homeless in this country. Reports show that almost one-third of homeless veterans suffer from substance abuse problems and another third suffer from mental and physical disabilities. Income inequality continues to place low-income veterans at the back of the line for quality care. Benefits continue to not reach the veterans in the most desperate need!

 

Ladies and gentlemen, the state of our veteran population is a travesty. These individuals were beckoned by the call to service and have returned home to a nation that has failed in its desire to honor these individuals for the sacrifices they’ve made for this country. I will not sugarcoat the fact that we have a moral obligation to guarantee that those that have given their all are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve! The preservation of human dignity is on the line!

 

John White is the candidate I trust to put our veterans first. Congressman White will oppose efforts to cut the VA budget in this crucial period! Congressman White will work with the congress to create new employment and education opportunities for veterans while also working to help veteran-run business start-ups receive the assistance they need to get off the ground! Congressman White will work to identify how efforts to address veteran homelessness in cities like New York City have been effective and how such practices can be implemented into the VA!

 

Veterans deserve a commander-in-chief who fights for them in foreign lands, but also fights for them on the streets of Chicago and Los Angeles! John White is the candidate ready to fight for veterans across this country get the treatment they deserve. The call to serve in our armed forces ought to be rewarded with gratitude, not poverty! Let’s elect John White this November!

 

Thanks y’all and may God bless you all!
