Milbloggers At Blackfive Endorse Pantano For Congress
Blackfive has long been a dedicated and respected milblogging group, headed by Matt Burden. Blackfive respresents a close-knit community of active-duty servicemembers and veterans.
Ilario Pantano is honored to accept the endorsement of the Blackfive group, and is buoyed by their continued demonstrated faith in him.
The following article is published with permission from the author:
We've followed the trials and tribulations of USMC First Lieutenant Ilario Pantano for awhile here on BlackFive. We've supported him since the beginning (and had to fight some of our own to do so), and, now, Ilario is running for Congress in the Congressional District NC-7. The 7th District has not had a Republican since March 3, 1871!
Pantano and his family live in North Carolina where, since 2006, he continues to serve his community as a Deputy Sheriff.
I'll post his press release after the Jump for you to read, but what you should all do is go visit his website, which unlike most campaign sites, is kept fresh and up to date with videos and commentary about Ilario on the campaign trail. Almost like a reality show - It's called "100 Days of Work" but I think of it as "No Better Friend TV".
Sign up for updates, volunteer if you're there in the district, and tell Ilario we have his back. I'll be donating to his campaign, too.
Update: The BlackFive family just donated $50.
Thank you, Blackfive!
