The Doherty Message

Colonel Brendan Doherty, set to formally announce his Congressional bid Thursday, has released a statement that provides a glimpse of what we'll see tomorrow and in the coming months. The integrity message, as you might expect, appears paramount in how the candidate will sell his bid to unseat Congressman David Cicilline. There's also a personal responsibility element:

“From my very first days as a Trooper, I have seen, first hand, the impact a failing system has on the ability of our citizens to lead productive and responsible lives. We must do better. For too long, Rhode Island and our nation have laid victim to the ’what’s in it for me’ syndrome, and look where it’s gotten us. Rhode Island needs Congressional representation with uncompromising strength and integrity, untainted by scandal and owing no party or person anything.  That’s me.  I believe my fresh and untainted perspective separates me from others whose vision has been blurred by partisan obligations and personal ambition.”
