‘Josh doesn’t like asking for money,’ so mom sends an email to his friends

Candidate for Secretary of State in Arkansas Joshua Ang Price and his RN mom Teresita. ‘A bright future ahead.’

My name is Teresita Price. I’m Josh’s mom.

Josh doesn’t like asking for money. So today, I told him I would ask you instead — and explain to you why he’s so deserving of your donation.

You always want your children to have more advantages than you had growing up. That was very true with me and Josh.

I grew up in the Philippines under the Marcos regime. At one point, President Marcos declared martial law, and our basic freedoms were threatened, including our right to free and fair elections.

I left to pursue an opportunity to work as a nurse in rural America. I was assigned to the hospital in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, and after meeting Josh’s father through a patient I was caring for, we got married and started a family.

I am so proud of the man Josh has become.

With such a bright future ahead of him, Josh has already proved himself to be an exemplary public servant.

No doubt, Josh’s years being around his father’s home-town gas station and grocery store laid the foundation for his work with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

As Secretary of State, he’ll be an advocate for all our businesses — no matter how small of a community they serve.

I saw firsthand how fragile democracy can be, and I’d like to think my story motivated Josh to serve as an Election Commissioner.

Democracy takes work. And Josh poured so much of himself into the work of keeping Arkansas’s elections free and fair.

After January 6th and all the lying about the election, I feared the worst. It was like history was repeating itself.

But when Josh launched his campaign to be Arkansas’s top election official, I’ll never forget what he said to me:

“Mom, I promise I will fight to make sure what happened in the Philippines doesn’t happen here, not just for you, but for all the people of Arkansas.”

I hope I’ve helped you understand why Josh’s character and experience would make him an exceptional Secretary of State. Can you donate to my son’s campaign today?
