In the end, we all want the same thing.
Hello, I'm Sean Freeman, and I'm running as an Independent for US Congress on November 5, 2024.
I am a graduate of John Carroll University. Following graduation, I moved back home to the suburbs of Chicago. Covid hit and I wanted to be closer to the community I built at JCU. So, I found my way back to the 11th District where a friend recommended me for a job and I put down roots as a homeowner. I am the oldest of four children and the son of parents who have worked in government, education and social services. My upbringing and education have been faith filled and centered on the principles of serving others. My maternal grandparents immigrated from Ireland to find a better life for their kids and grandkids. I'd like to carry on that hope for everyone in the 11th District.
I've had a chance to meet a lot of people searching and working for a better life through community opportunities: (1) campaigning for the Cleveland mayor and an OH Senator candidate, (2) meeting tomato farmers in Florida fighting to earn an extra penny per bushel, (3) talking with people at the US-Mexico Border and El Salvador, (4) working with Habitat for Humanity in Mississippi, (5) serving food at food pantries and homeless shelters, (6) reading and working with kids in their schools and (7) playing basketball and writing poetry with kids at the juvenile detention center to name a few. In all these encounters, people are seeking respect, safety and the ability to care for and enjoy their family and friends. That isn't much to ask, yet it appears harder to come by than it needs to be. It humbles me every time someone shares their struggle, but listening isn't enough for me. I'm running for Congress to find and implement ways to alleviate problems or make them easier to face.
Enough about me, I want to get to know you.
I can't do this alone. I need 4,200 signatures by March 2024 to get on the ballot. I'm hitting the street and knocking on doors to talk with voters (my favorite part of a campaign). If I haven't seen you yet, click below to sign on in support. People tell me that winning as an independent is impossible. Together, let's show them that nothing is impossible if we work together to create change that benefits everyone! I would be honored to earn your vote on November 5, 2024 and represent you.
BY THE NUMBERS
The work starts now. Here's where we're at:
We are all better off when everyone participates in the election process. YOU can change the outcome, so play the game!
