September 28, 2006. Little Rock, AR. Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, General Wesley Clark today endorsed the candidacy of State Representative Angie Paccione for Congress in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District. Prior to her tenure in the Colorado State Assembly, Angie Paccione was a professional basketball player, a professional educator, and a community leader.
“Today American families face many difficult challenges at home and abroad. There has never been a time when foreign affairs were as closely linked to the daily lives of Coloradoans as they are now. We are fighting the causes of terrorism that threaten our homes and we must prepare for a changing global economy that demands that America train our people to compete for the highest paying jobs.
“Colorado is home to thousands of military families who deserve a partner in Washington who respects their daily challenges and sacrifices. That partner will be Angie Paccione who is committed to support our troops and veterans with policies that help with their healthcare, education, and insurance.
“Angie Paccione is just the kind of leader Colorado deserves to have in Washington, DC. Her commitment to public service provides Angie with the experience and perspective we need on Capitol Hill in these trying times at home and abroad. That’s why I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with her in this campaign. She will be part of Colorado’s team in Washington to stand up and give people the peace of mind of knowing that government is doing its work while they are doing theirs," said General Clark.
