For Father’s Day, I wanted to share about Dave, my partner in life and parenting.
When Dave and I began dating in law school, I quickly saw what a caring, curious, bright and good person he was. I had a feeling that the future with him would be wonderful. Fifteen years later, as we parent our three children, this feeling remains.
Over the years, we’ve shared our values and supported each other’s dreams and efforts to make the world a better place. I have so many stories about Dave doing the right thing, even when it wasn’t the easiest. I’ve seen how Dave cares for our three children, Teddy, Emmy and Paxton, and sets an incredible example of compassion, inclusivity, hard work, and good humor while dedicating himself to public service.
Emmy and Teddy understand why Dave is running for Congress. In their own words it’s because “Donald Trump makes bad choices” (Emmy) and “to help us and help all the children” (Teddy).
Happy Father’s Day, Dave, and to fathers everywhere.
