This week my son Clark will officially enter the race for the 23rd District Congressional Seat from California to the United States Congress. He credits IWU in the preparation it gave him as he embarks on this huge challenge and opportunity. Be watching for the official announcement later this week as Alumni Relations will be posting the press release in Alumni News at that time.
Yesterday, I learned Clark will need thousands of mini-Clark bars. For many of you who were on campus in 2000 this may sound familiar. During Clark’s successful run for SGO president at IWU in 2000-2001, mini-Clark bars were one of Clark’s campaign gimmicks. Marion and much of Indiana experienced a run on “Clark” bars during that time. Hopefully, a run is on the horizon not only here but all across the 23rd Congressional District of California.
If you want to help encourage Clark, I will be accepting donations of mini-Clark bars at the Alumni House. I will ship these out to Clark leading up to the California Primary in June and the general election in November. This is one small way we can all take part in helping Clark bring Christian values to California 23rd District and to his becoming the next United States Congressman from California.
Blessings and thank you from a proud father, Lonnie
