- What the People of the 20th Want
Excerpt: "Voters in the 20th District want representatives who listen to them and act on their behalf. They want individual freedom to conduct their own lives and make personal choices. They want to raise their families without excessive government interference, and they want to feel safe in their neighborhoods and their homes. They want a representative who reflects their family values, their work ethic and who understands their hopes, their fears and their dreams. The people of the 20th District want and deserve good government, and I’ll see that they get it!"
Bell and his wife, Anne, have two children.
