Evie and I wish all of you a happy New Year in 2012, and extend our wishes that peace and prosperity will be with you and your families.
With the changing of the year, we can all look forward with brightness of expectations because of the great nation in which we live. The Founding Fathers have laid groundwork for us all, that if we will work hard and persevere, the great promise of life, liberty and happiness of this land can be ours. Every citizen has equality of opportunity to strive to be better in our lives, our families, our thoughts, our generosity and our resolve.
With this new year, I am determined to do my own personal best to make things better within my own sphere of influence. May we each find success in our good endeavors, and may our nation become a better place for families, businesses, individuals and liberty.
