Mark Gladney for Congress fundraising email:

Welcome to our campaign for Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District. I wanted to introduce myself to you and ask you for your help in kicking our do-nothing Congress off of government welfare and forcing them to work for a living.

I am a proud to be a native Mississippian. I am a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel with 27 years of service to my country with multiple combat deployments, the proud father of a 14-year-old daughter (who is going on 30!) and I currently work in the offshore oil and gas industry as a contract manager with a commercial helicopter company.

Like you, I am fed up with this do-nothing Congress, and with Steven Palazzo in particular. We have real problems here in Mississippi but instead of solutions, all we get is more political gridlock, finger-pointing and grandstanding.

Thanks to professional politicians like Steven Palazzo, every other state in the country shouts “Thank God for Mississippi!” whenever a national rating comes out and they find themselves near the bottom of the list.

Mississippi has become first at being last, and instead of working to provide solutions, our incumbent Congressman is actively encouraging members of Congress to continue to not do their jobs and collect their government paychecks.

He calls that “protecting Mississippi values.”

Those aren’t MY Mississippi values, and I’m betting they aren’t yours either.

As your Congressman, I will dedicate myself to working for this district instead of wasting my time on political infighting. I have worked hard my entire life and I will take that ethic of hard work and service to Washington.

Between now and November, I will be criss-crossing the 4th district to talk to as many voters as possible, but I need your help to get the word out.

Please consider making a donation of $25, $50, or $100 today to help us get the campaign rolling.

We will be launching our website soon, but in the meantime, click this link to join us on Facebook and learn a little bit more about me and our campaign to show Washington, D.C. what real Mississippi values look like.

Thank you,

Mark Gladney
