Kevin brings his experience of service to the citizens of the Maryland Sixth Congressional District. Kevin believes that government’s first duty is to protect its citizens and said, “I hope to give my fellow citizens the opportunity to vote for a candidate that will begin to help clear the decks of institutional career politicians. I will serve our country’s interest, not the agendas of institutional politicians and an elite few.” Kevin is a conservative American and the only veteran in this race.
