Binghamton, NY (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Michael "Vass" Vasquez, founder and President of M V Consulting, Inc., announced that he is forming an exploratory committee (http://exploratory.electmichaelvasquez.com) in anticipation of a possible 2014 U.S. House of Representatives run.
Mr. Vasquez is testing the waters on a run for the New York 22nd Congressional District, currently held by Rep. Richard Hanna, a fellow Republican. This means that Rep. Hanna could be faced with a Primary battle to maintain his seat in Congress.
In a statement Mr. Vasquez said, "Elections are important. From what they mean as a symbol of our freedom, to the massive effort committed by candidates and supporters, to the choices made by voters in primaries and on election day. I have come to this decision with much deliberation, having seen first-hand the dedication and sweat of several campaigns I have interviewed and followed over the years.
Still the toll of even testing the waters is worth the net result that voters will receive come election day. The process ensures that the best candidates - that have a grasp of the issues constituents hold dear, that are connected to the communities, that are willing to stand up and speak and go to the floor of Congress and legislate for the betterment of the people they represent and the nation at large - are the candidates that voters get to choose from. Not just this or that political party, but the very best ideals and representation. That is what elected office is supposed to be about, and why I am testing the waters."
