Lake Arrowhead, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2012
Last week Congressional Candidate Phil Liberatore and his wife Dana announced that they were going to hit the road in Dana’s late father’s pickup truck, traveling throughout California’s 8th Congressional district, to meet and greet voters. Midway through the trek the duo say they’re having a great time meeting old friends and making new ones in the district they hope to represent in Washington D.C.
Dubbed the Farmer’s Legacy Tour in honor of Dana’s farmer father Earl Holland who left his beloved White Chevy Silverado to his daughter and son-in-law, the tour is taking the Liberatore’s through Mono, Inyo and San Bernardino counties and the Liberatore’s are taking it all in and taking the time to hear the concerns of the people they meet along the way.
So far their travels have taken them to such local attractions as the Lone Pine Film History Museum and small businesses like Lone Pine Auto Care and Gus’s Fresh Jerky in Olancha.
Among the issues that have come up along the way are local issues raised by new friends in Olancha, California who are upset that Cal-Trans bought a portion of land for $13 million in order to build a highway that will bypass the town.
“These are the kinds of issues that other candidates miss when they don’t take the time to stop and meet people in this district and the very issues that I will fight on the people’s behalf for,” said Phil Liberatore. “The people in Inyo, Mono and San Bernardino counties deserve to have a voice in Congress for lower taxes, less government and government accountability. With their help, I intend to be that voice and speak on their behalf.”
The Farmer’s Legacy Tour continues this week as the Liberatore’s will be rounding out the week with a trip to Mammoth and Bishop for Mule Days. They will be riding in the parade on Saturday and attending church in the area on Sunday.
“California is a lot more than San Francisco and Los Angeles,” said Liberatore. “We can’t forget the hopes and dreams and needs of all Californians and especially our farmers and ranchers and those businesses that support them. Every mile that I travel in Earl Holland’s truck, I remember the values that I learned from him and that I continue to learn from his daughter, my wife. They’re the values that all small-town Californians share: integrity, hard work, and character. Those are the values that I intend to bring to Washington DC.”
