Haggerty statement of support for Reyes challenger Besco
From the Tim Besco for U.S. Rep. campaign:
There were 300 people in attendance at the Kick-Off Press Conference announcing Tim Besco’s candidacy as the Republican Nominee for the 16th Congressional Seat for the U.S. Congress on September 30, 2009. The following statement was read (Commissioner Haggerty was not able to attend) at the beginning of the event:
“I am delighted and proud to express my support for Tim Besco, as the Republican candidate for the United States Congress. Though Mr. Besco is new to the political arena—he is not new to the issues now facing our country and community. Offering an example, being a nurse for the U.S. Navy provides him a unique first-hand perspective regarding the current health care issue.
Mr. Besco is a person of good character and his life experience demonstrates a great testament of the values he engenders, the beautiful family he cherishes, and the timeless service he has made protecting our country as a member of our armed forces. He is not only the leader we want, but need, representing our families—in Washington. The election of Tim Besco will be a new beginning for El Paso.” — El Paso County Commissioner Daniel Haggerty
