I’ve heard this from my Dad forever—and he is dead serious about it.
He doesn’t tolerate slackers well. And, when it comes to the truth—there is no gray. It is either the whole truth, or it’s a lie. Sometimes I learned this the hard way. Funny how these things parents say over and over will rub off. Now that I’m in the work world, I don’t care much for slackers myself. You were right, Dad. Happy Father’s Day!
If you were at the November 2010 Pompeo general election night party, you heard me have the honor of introducing Dad for the first time as the Representative of the 4th District. Click on this video to listen
All the hard work paid off.
My family helps each other with everything, so I’m not used to not being around for all the parades and work to be done on the campaign right now. I hope the Field Reps are keeping up the fine Team Pompeo tradition of good humor and hard work.
Grandpa Wayne and I enjoying Italian food. Grandpa Wayne taught me to be on time. Scratch that. He taught me to be early, to read lots and to cheer for the Lakers and Dodgers.
Grandpa Jimmy, Dad and I. Grandpa Jimmy taught me to tie my shoes and, way more importantly, he taught me how to play golf. He also introduced me to Mardi Gras and crawfish.
Dad and I on a jet ski at the annual family reunion at Grand Lake. We had lots of competitive water activities on the lake. Dad still thinks that he won most of them, but I can assure you he didn’t.
Dad and I at the Army-Navy football game, December 2012. Army lost, but every year our hopes are still high. GO ARMY!
To Dad, my grandfathers, my uncles, and to the fathers working on and supporting our campaign—Happy Father’s Day. And, remember: Work Hard. Tell the Truth. Keep Your Faith.
And Good Things Will Happen.
