Kevin O. McCarthy (on the left) gets my vote for being one smart, straight talking, principled, entrepreneurial, and strategic thinker. Wow!
Kevin is a second term US Congressman from Bakersfield, CA, an agricultural and oil area. His roots run deep in terms of integrity and leadership. I was profoundly encouraged to see a man of high character and practical business experience serving our nation.
We need more business persons being about the people's business. Government is big business but it is overrun with lawyers. No lawyer jokes here. I have tremendous respect for their training, profession, and role; but legal minds are contentious minds. Business minds are trained to manage and lead with an eye toward creating value.
One day I hope to have the opportunity to vote for Kevin McCarthy for President or Vice President of the United States. Kevin McCarthy is a winner… and not just in name only!
