I worked in the oil and gas industry for three decades and I’ve seen our economy shift firsthand. Right now, we need policymakers with the brainpower to make sense of all the big changes going on around us and to position our economy for the future. Abe is a bright young businessman who represents that future and we’re lucky to have his talents.

It’s not easy to bring folks from different political walks of life together to get things done right now. Abe is a natural team builder and the kind of leader we need to get our recovery going in 2021.

2020 was a tough year for the restaurant industry. We want local leaders who’ll work for our recovery as hard as we will. We trust Abe to listen to small businesses and to work together.
