My name is Kellen Squire and I'm running for the Virginia House of Delegates in the 58th District!
I'm a husband and a father to three beautiful children. I'm an emergency room nurse and a proud graduate of the University of Virginia. I'm a Christian, an avid outdoorsman, and a hard-working, middle-class American who's fed up with the political system today.
People are angry — and for good reason!
We've almost killed the working class in this country. Wages have been stagnant for more than three decades. Our government seems to work more for lobbyists and special interests than for ordinary people. The worst kind of toxicity in our politics, pitting some groups of Americans against others, is a disease that threatens the future of our country.
That disease is spread by political operatives and career politicians, some of whom have spent decades in office by gerrymandering themselves into comfortable little districts so that they never have to run against a serious opponent. Why should they ever try to change things? They feel as though they can ignore the needs of anyone who isn't wealthy enough to write a big check.
I've been waiting for someone to stand up and champion our cause. Someone who would stand up and fight for the folks in the middle. And this year, I finally decided to give it a go myself. To stand up and try to make a difference.
We have so much potential here in central Virginia. Our future is bright and it's worth fighting for. But I can't do it alone. I need your help. The only way to bring change to Richmond is to start working together.
I'll be seeing you out on the trail!
