MONTGOMERY - At noon on Wednesday, January 6th, 2010, Rick Barber will formally announce his candidacy for Alabama's 2nd Congressional District's seat at his home in Montgomery.
After a month of consulting with his family and his exploratory committee, small business owner and Montgomery resident Rick Barber has decided to run for Congress.
"My family, friends and supporters have discussed my possible candidacy at length, and we've decided that the time is right for me to run for Congress," said Barber.
"Washington spending is out of control. Congress and President Obama are financing their exhorbitant spending by buying American debt with American dollars. They are inflating our currency, and leading our economy down a road that we can no longer follow."
"It doesn't take a genius to understand that you can't spend more money than you have for long without serious reprecussions."
"Congress is in dire need of a small business owner's common sense. I will be a voice of reason and fiscal responsibility, and I will fight for federalist principles and Alabama's limited government values."
On Wednesday, January 6th, Rick Barber will announce his candidacy at his home at 211 Arrowhead Drive in Montgomery. He will give a speech from a podium he built himself in front of supporters, then field questions about his campaign and his candidacy.
