Young people, in 2008, came out in record numbers to vote for Barack Obama. Imagine if we did the same thing during the midterm election. How different would this country look if we were to put forth that same effort for those candidates that represent our communities and districts? It’s important as young people that we know whose running, where they’re running and who they’re running against. So for the next coming weeks Global Grind Politics will show you WHO’S ON DECK in November, why you should support them and how you can make real change in your community by voting for this candidate.

Rory grew up in Nevada and attended public schools which instilled in him the importance of education. Rory’s “ethical to a fault” attitude rings true when you examine his record, Rory’s success in the court room and business world is evident in the way he ran his government.
