“Andy Harris M.D. released the following statement on Independence Day:
“”Ronald Reagan once said, “”America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere””. As Americans around the country come together to celebrate Independence Day, we are reminded once again of our nation’s unparalleled freedom and opportunity for its citizens. The United States has always shone as a beacon of hope and continues to do so today. Our nation was founded by and continues to thrive on the hard work, dedication and faith of those who saw America as a land of opportunity for all, regardless of status, wealth or nationality.
My parents immigrated to the United States to flee Communism with nothing but the hope of a better life for themselves and their children. By legally becoming American citizens and embracing the values and work ethic of the U.S. they succeeded. Now here I am an anesthesiologist, husband and father of five, US Navy veteran, state senator and my party’s nominee for the United States Congress. God Bless America.””“
