As a retired Air Force officer and Central Coast resident, I want to publicly wish State Assemblymember Katcho Achadjian a successful bid for the 24th District seat in the United States Congress. At our first meeting, I realized Katcho is not a politician; he put himself through school and is a community-focused businessman and public servant who successfully pursued, achieved, and emulates the American Dream. Most importantly, he seeks policies and common-sense legislation to afford the same opportunity to all Americans. He shares many of the same values I learned in my 23-year military career, as well as those of my son and daughter, who are still serving in the armed forces. A staunch supporter of property owner’s rights and limited government interference, I can’t imagine a more qualified Californian to represent me, my family, and my community in the U.S. Congress in Washington, D.C.
