On November 8th, 2016 we as Americans will go the polls and cast a ballot to choose the direction of our country for the foreseeable future. This is possibly the most important election in over 100 years and certainly the most crucial election in my lifetime.

The stakes are very high and continuing the "status quo" simply should not be acceptable anymore. I know Manassas and its people very well, I work in our communities and hear day in and day out the problems that face individuals and families in 2016.

Having a young family myself, I can easily relate to the stress a new parent may face and the concerns of finding the "American Dream" in an area where homes easily start at $300,000 plus. Life can be tough at times. That is why I believe it is so critical to elect someone with empathy and compassion who takes pride in the community they serve.

I've spent my career thus far as a police officer in Virginia and New York, a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal, a private detective, conservator of the peace, local small business owner, and God willing your next City Councilman.

Unlike some of the contestants in this race, I do not believe that being a board member, chairman or club member of this or that somehow qualifies you to understand the problems residents and families of the City of Manassas face in 2016. Sitting present on the City Council for decades is not a accomplishment by itself. Positively affecting people's lives and communities is however the very founding principle of public service.

I ask that you make that vote in 2016 a "positive" vote. Vote MICHAEL YOULEN for Manassas City Council on November 8th, 2016
