"In YOUR Own Words" [PLEASE!]


"In YOUR Own Words"
[PLEASE!]

To my friends and supporters: I noticed that a couple of you took the time to write some kind words of support and endorsement as a comment on this blog. While I was quite touched and appreciative, it gave rise to an idea to that I should start this post and highlight those comments here on this post where they can be more visible. I still plan to create a website just as soon as I am able and will use those comments on there as well as on my campaign literature.

So now I am just coming out and soliciting your words of support and endorsement. I would really appreciate it for you to take a moment to write a line or two and give your comments about my run for Barstow City Council. You can either contribute your words by clicking on the comment button at the bottom of this post, or send me an email and I will add it to this post as I recieve them. I have created a new email address for this campaign. You can now contact me at:

HalsteadForBarstow@gmail.com

Here's what the PEOPLE are saying:

In the name of the entire campaign staff I would like to congratulate you on your decision to run for city council. Like you, time and time again I was disgusted by what I saw my representatives doing while in office. When I saw Buck McKeon vote yes for the Medicare Part D bill, something inside of me snapped. We can't let these people get free rides anymore. I commend you for having the courage to run and hopefully we can work together to assure that the people of our hometown are finally represented.
Thank you for all of your input and support. If there is anything I can further assist you with, please let me know. We're in this together. Best of Luck,
Robert Rodriguez, Candidate for 25th Congressional District

Barstow needs some new "blood" and Larry Halstead is just the guy to bring it on. Not only is he a great guy and devoted family man, but he also has a vision for this town that can be either the jewel of the High Desert or it can remain the joke that it always has been. My vote is for "Halstead for Barstow". Keep up the good work Larry!

I don't know Robert Rodriguez, but I do know Larry Halstead. The reason Larry was proud to post the (Robert Rodriguez) article is because he truly believes with all his soul that politicians should serve the people, not the other way around. I know that he will do this for Barstow. We need him so that the voice of the people of Barstow can finally be heard!

Your fight is the people of Barstow's fight.
When you win Barstow wins.
Then We the People win!

The city council and city fathers have always stymied the growth of the area since we've been here (1968). Thank goodness also for the activists who have bought matters to the public eye on a regular basis. The wealthy of Barstow have always ruled Barstow. This town is at its worst, in my opinion, currently...as the bitterness of wanting or not wanting a casino has put us all at risk. Now, the casino projects are on hold in Sacramento!
I wish you good fortune and very much luck as you pursue your way in the city council election!
Keep up the good fight!

Pretty Cool! I got a chance to check this out today. For too long, this community has suffered for lack of leadership with a vision. You have excellent leadership, a dedication to serving your community and a great vision. You're going to be a great Councilman. Go Larry!

It takes vision to be a good leader. Larry Halstead will be a great leader in city council because his vision for Barstow is far greater than just making adjustments to the status quo. He sees what is and imagines what kind of a paradise it might become. He will lead the city council to serve the needs of the people and give Barstow the upgrade it deserves!

Vote Halstead!
