Endorsement from Michael DiTerlizzi

“One of the key lessons I have learned, in over 30 years in law enforcement, is that public service requires a servant’s heart, and a selfless passion for seeing citizens have a prosperous, safe environment in which to live, build businesses, and raise their families. Calvin Turnquest is a leader…

Billy & Karen Vaughn Respond to Carl Domino’s Personal Attack on Me

Dear Mr. Domino, In a Facebook post dated April 25, 2014, you wrote, “Unfortunately Calvin [Turnquest] chose not to emulate me in serving in the Armed Forces.” You went on to describe Calvin as a lesser man than you, simply because he felt led to follow a different path with…
