I want to be the people's voice and I want the people of Houston to know that I will always put them first," said Ford.
HOUSTON, TX, December 16, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today first responder, successful businessman and Republican Congressional candidate, Jerry Ford swore off taking lobbyist money for his campaign. He challenged his opponents to take the pledge in swearing off all contributions from lobbyists so their only obligation is to the people.
"My only obligation will be to the people of Houston. That's why today I am pledging not to take any campaign contributions from lobbyists. I am challenging my opponents to do the same," said Ford. "The people of Houston should pick our next Representative not Washington. Unfortunately, Washington is trying to dictate to us who should be our voice. That's wrong. Having worked all my life serving the people of Houston, I know the people better than anyone."
Ford has signed a pledge that will prohibit his campaign from accepting donations from lobbyists.
"As the next Congressman, I don't want to be obligated to pharmaceutical companies or big tech companies. I want to be the people's voice and I want the people of Houston to know that I will always put them first," said Ford.
'If my opponents don't sign, then voters need to ask themselves if they want a Texas voice or Washington voice in DC," challenged Ford.
Jerry Ford embodies the American spirit of working hard for success. Not only has he been a successful businessman, but he has been a first responder helping to keep our neighborhoods safe.
Jerry Ford retired from the Houston Fire Department after serving as the Assistant Fire Chief. He has also been successful in the private sector owning several businesses. He knows what it takes to sign the front of a paycheck.
Jerry has never been a person to sit on the sidelines when help is needed. He has given back to the community by being a volunteer coach, coaching Little League Baseball and Basketball for kids in Houston for over 20 years, winning a National Baseball Championship in Cooperstown, New York, in 2007.
Like so many of Jerry Ford feels that our country is going in the wrong direction, with the Progressive Democrats socialist agenda, which has led to, high inflation, an open borders, and run-away crime across neighborhoods and cities. Enough is enough. That's why Jerry Ford is running and running hard to be our next Congressman.
In Washington, Jerry will have the backbone and determination to fight for limited government, lower taxes, a strong defense, a growing our economy, and secure borders. We can count on Jerry.
