As I’ve crisscrossed Central Texas, I have learned a lot about what makes us great–and what needs to be fixed. The most defining quality I’ve seen is our common desire to leave Texas and our country a better place for our children and all generations to come. Whether you’re a farmer or tech entrepreneur, a nurse or college student, a retiree, a real estate agent or a rabbi–we all care about our families and our own lives. And that translates into concerns about schools, safety, roads, health care and jobs.

I share these concerns too and decided to participate in our great democracy by running for Congress. For more than a decade, I’ve called Central Texas home. My three children grew up attending Round Rock Public Schools, and my oldest now attends Baylor University.

Over my lifetime, I’ve developed the skills and collected the life experiences to qualify as your congressman. I’m a software engineer and project manager. I have spent more than 35 years in evidence-based problem solving in complex environments, as well as gaining consensus among diverse groups of stakeholders. I currently work as a project manager providing advice and expertise to clients from around the world.

I now want to go to work on behalf of the people of Congressional District TX17. It’s time for a new generation of representatives in Congress. It’s time for voters to demand leaders who respect the viewpoints of all their constituents and who will work to unite us based on being Americans, not exploit our differences for personal gain.

We need leaders who will be open to principled compromise–leaders who will not only solve the issues of our time so that we and our children can live free today, but who also have a vision for building the America of the 21st century.

We need leaders who understand that the Constitution defines Congress as a co-equal branch of government, and that maintaining its independence is critical to our success as a nation. Above all, we need leaders who will put loyalty to the country, the Constitution, and their constituents ahead of donors, parties, and presidents.

At its foundation, our country was designed to be for all of us–rich and poor; young, middle-aged, and seniors; all races, all religions, all creeds. I encourage you to participate in this country’s democratic process too. In the United States of America, everyone counts, every vote counts.

Make your voice heard.

I’m Rick Kennedy and I’m asking for your vote in November to elect me to represent you in the US House of Representatives – Texas Congressional District 17.
