“It is an honor beyond measure to be a candidate for the United States Senate representing the great state of Maryland. Maryland has an exceptional work force that is doing amazing things both in the private sector and government. College costs are through the roof and I know firsthand how critical training and education can translate into opportunities and jobs. We need solutions now that solve these runaway costs and improve opportunities for all.”

“Maryland is ready for change and we need to lead the nation in providing no cost college, that includes housing, meals, childcare and medical insurance. We need policies that put the middle class and struggling poor to work. With a comprehensive training and education program that provides a complete solution, we will ensure more of our best and brightest see their potential realized, not just those that can afford it. We are ready for this kind of change. “

“In my candidacy, I want to bring the struggle of everyday citizens to the White House. From the National Security impacts, underemployment, the incredible cost of medical insurance, childcare, the continued work of our schools and persistent struggles of the poor. I want to be your ground engaged advocate. I will bring all parties to the table, and I will get the job done for all of us, not just career politicians and insiders. We can do better than this and I want to make that happen for all of us.”

    “Erik Jetmir, U.S Navy Chief Petty Officer & NSA Intel Analyst and candidate for United States Senator for the state of Maryland is the embodiment of an informed, compassionate, intelligent citizen. He is a great analyst because first, he listens. Whether his opinion is similar to yours, theirs or others, he listens. Always first to listen. But his analysis is rarely isolated to thinking alone and more commonly is applied to doing. He leans into challenges and helps them emerge as opportunities and then coordinates solutions that benefit not just one but many. His depth of insights are delivered with clear speech and are never far from humor. His laugh is how you want your laugh to be. His critiques are what you would like to hear when you are being critiqued. His generosity of spirit and intellect makes all members of his audience relate. He is no superman. He does not boast. He makes no promises he cannot deliver. He exemplifies maturity at a time when leaders have forgotten how important that quality remains. This is how I have experienced Erik Jetmir. His platforms and opinions are captured on his www.erikjetmir.com. Clearly expressed, grounded in research and an authentic life. We deserve his service and I hope you will come to believe that too.”

He will be a tremendous Senator representing the best interests of everyone. I just wish Erik was running for Senate out here in California. So please support Erik Jetmir and vote him in as your next Senator!!!”

    “I endorse and support U.S Navy Chief Petty Officer & NSA Intel Analyst, Eric Jetmir’s for United States Senate because he is an individual who can be trusted to deal honestly and knowledgeablely with situations that makes lesser men cower. He works extremely well with anyone, whether you share his views or oppose them. He listens to your issues with a lean towards helping you solve whatever the problem(s) may be. I have worked with this man as he provided support to my brothers and sisters in the United States military. He provided training support, insight and wisdom to my family in arms. He worked hard and has a warm genuine smile. He can take criticism and turn around and have you laughing because he can be self-deprecating. He is very approachable and has a deep abiding concern for the future of our youth as well as the nation itself. The one thing that drew me to him is his level of intelligence. The man is not only smart but intelligent. Allow me to differentiate between the two words. Being smart is a state of existence wherein an individual has the ability to remember what they were taught. It encompasses everything from book learning to learning a skill. Intelligence is a state of existence wherein the individual can solve problems. This would include problems that they never received instructions on how to deal with. Intelligence trumps smartness in every arena! Mr. Jetmir is in an elite grouping. He is smart, intelligent, wise, understanding, considerate and fully understands which of his abilities to apply in whatever environment he is in. This is extremely useful so that he doesn’t overwhelm anyone and make them feel small and insignificant. It also affords him the wherewithal to stand with the most powerful and elite. I’m not simply offering words of encouragement to him but for everyone willing to read this posting, it is my sincerest desire that you fully understand who he is. Finally, he is a family man who loves and respects his wife and guides his children with love, wisdom and determination!”

His military training is only surpassed by the 1st tier knowledge and application in prevention of international cyber threats currently presented and the military knowledge invested in him to identify and prevent further possible attacks. Voters should consider the caliber of candidates, service and ability in meeting the needs of our country. Please know he is more than capable.”

Time for change that matters

I had a chance to interview Dr. Michael Eric Dyson and talk about activism, race and the evolving conversation on these issues.  We need to do a better job of engaging the topics with each other and finding a way to clearly frame our history and a way forward. Activism like we see with the Parkland students demonstrates the power of ideas and the courage of action.
