Meet Jack McDonald - Candiate for Congress

The Austin High Tech Community is hosting a happy hour "Meet and Greet" for entrepreneur turned political candidate, Jack McDonald, on Thursday, October 15th at Molotov.

Jack McDonald is former CEO and current the Chairman of the Board of Perficient (PRFT). He has spent more than a decade as a leader in the Austin Business Community, and is now going forward with a run for the US House of Representatives.

I have known Jack for several years, and he is the "real deal". A good man who cares deeply about his family, his community and his country. Jack is exactly the type of person we all long to have represent us in Congress.

I am proud to support my friend in his bid for Congress. I don't see his candidacy as about politics (he is a Democrat), but about sending an experienced business leader (who understands first-hand what it takes to grow a company, employ hundreds of people, and make the tough decisions) to Washington DC to tackle the tough issues.

I encourage those of you who read this blog and live in Austin to stop by the happy hour on October 15, 2009. Meet Jack, learn about his candidacy, and mingle with many of Austin's technology professionals.

Have A Great Day.
