Friend,  I wanted you to be among the first to know that today I am announcing my campaign for Congress in Michigan’s 10th District.  We all understand the need conservative leadership in Washington to ensure that the conservative principles we all share are put into policy.  I will work toward more limited government, a strong national defense and homeland security and a growing economy that allows for needed job-creation.  As someone who has run a business in St. Clair, helped thousands of people gain the skills to build a career, and led conservative fights to keep our taxes low and make government operate within its means, I believe I am the best choice to follow Candice Miller to Washington.
 
Below is my announcement video.  Please watch here. 

Earlier this year many of us worked together to defeat Proposal 1, the largest proposed Michigan tax increase in the last 50 years.  We proved that by pushing forward our conservative arguments that we can win the support of the vast majority of voters in our state.  The result in that campaign was a historic victory in which over 80% of the people of our state agreed with our position and we can bring those same conservative principles to Washington. 
 
I believe in the American Dream because I have lived it, but today that dream is slipping away for too many in our nation.  By continuing to put forward our shared conservative ideas, we can succeed in our efforts to secure that dream for our children and grandchildren.
 
My campaign will hit the ground running and build the strongest possible team.  I am proud to announce that Don Brown will be my campaign manager and Jamie Roe will be my general consultant.  Many know Jamie and Don to be outstanding public servants and tremendous conservative leaders with a great record of success in the 10th District.  I am glad to have them on my team.  
 
To find out more about the campaign, please go to our website at www.paulmitchellforcongress.com .  I look forward to speaking with you as I travel our district and listening to your ideas on the best way forward to build a stronger America because I believe strongly that in order to be effective first you must listen and then not be afraid to lead.  I will work tirelessly to not only earn your vote, but more importantly your trust.  That discussion and this campaign begin today.
Sincerely,
Paul Mitchell
Candidate for US House (MI-10)
