Oh, so glad you asked:

It is now time to bring to bear the experience I have gained in government, nonprofit, military and business, for the benefit of all the citizens of the 35th District. I hope to ensure for the next generation the educational and health care opportunities I have had, to safeguard the precious environment that brought us here and to promote a business climate that provides family wage jobs so that all our children and grandchildren may enjoy this wonderful place.

Read the entire thing, its pretty good. Also at the blog of the 35th LD, read about the man he hopes to replace, Bill Eickmeyer.
