  1. Vernon is great, the story is great.

    However, our state needs more than a great feel good story.

    I look forward, after this introduction, to more meat in the message.

    I know Vernon has the intellect, determination and ability to do great things. I want to hear them.

    I will not rally around “ideas” and “stories”. I want to rally around sound economics and strong principles and policies.
