As a father of two sons, I understand the need to conserve our natural resources and the environment for the generations to come. Together with the private sector, the Congress should carefully work to promote the development of alternative energy sources and the conservation of our natural resources. Together, Americans should make smart decisions that eliminate waste and reuse and recycle materials when possible to help save money, limit unnecessary energy use, and help our environment.
I am a staunch supporter of the For the Love of the Lake program, which is an enthusiastic and energetic group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of White Rock Lake Park as an urban oasis. As a Team Leader, I have worked with many volunteers to clean up sections of White Rock Lake. As an active Eagle Scout, I have learned the importance of protecting our country's natural beauty and conserving its natural resources, and I strive to promote these values in other Scouts and throughout my community.
