Thanks for your support & endorsement Councilman Barry Tyler Jr. It’s been a pleasure knowing you and watching you grow into the professional that you’ve become.
“I first met Thomas McDermott Jr. while I was a student at Hammond High and competing in the city-wide high school mock trial competition. He was serving as a judge for the competition and afterwards we discussed his thoughts on my performance and what my future plans were (after high school and college). He also gave me his card and said to contact him if I needed anything. I could immediately tell that he was a genuine, caring leader and from that day on, I was able to reach out to him for advice and guidance. A few years later, he was elected to his first term as Mayor. What I feel to be the most important part of all of this is that I am not the only one who has a similar story. If you know Mayor McDermott, you know that he is someone that will go above and beyond to help others. From his first day in office, he has worked to make this city a better place and I know he will do the same thing as our next Congressman. Even if you don’t believe in every action he takes, you can believe in his heart and how he has never strayed from trying to improve the overall quality of life for all residents in this city (and has successfully done so in many areas) and that is what he will continue to do for all of Northwest Indiana.”
“I would never tell anyone who to vote for, because everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I did want to share why I am supporting McDermott for Congress!”
