‘I Have the Conn’
It’s a brand new year and I feel very optimistic about the direction of our country. The first six months of the new government have shown that our new President is serious about implementing a plan to sustain our economic recovery.

There are certainly reasons to be pessimistic. But from where I stand, I think there are equally compelling reasons to expect a resurgence of optimism.
