My grandfather Kanhaiyalal Tandon, fought for the independence of India. Because of his experience, I grew up with an appreciation for the freedom we had. Too often, politicians take for granted the freedom we have here in America. They have no historical context and do not realize the gift that our forefathers gave us. As your Congressman, I will never forget the gift of liberty, nor will I eschew my role as your public servant. I would be honored to serve this community in Congress and proud to fight for you in Washington, D.C.
