Michel Faulkner for CongressNEW YORK, N.Y. /eNewsChannels/ — As a financial commentator, Peter Grandich always has something to say and his opinions and forecasts are sought-after by hundreds of thousands on his daily blog, The Grandich Letter. Yet, in over 25 years of broadcasting his opinion, Grandich has never endorsed a candidate for political office. Until now.

Peter Grandich, founder of Trinity Financial Sports & Entertainment Management Company, announced that he is supporting Michel Faulkner for Congress in NY’s 15th district race.

“I know Michel Faulkner personally, and know he is a godly man who has been blessed with wisdom and compassion and a true desire to help his fellow human beings. Michel’s enthusiasm is real. He will make a great congressman,” Grandich adds.

Faulkner replies, “It thrills me to have people like Peter Grandich back me for office. It is through business leaders like Peter that America will be restored. His endorsement means more to me than any political endorsement because it’s from the heart of a guy who really understands what I am trying to do.”

Faulkner went on to express his belief that without new leadership in Washington D.C., our children and grandchildren will pay the price for our society’s corruption and materialism, and he is making it his personal mission to help restore the faith in our democracy.

“We are allowing the American dream to be stolen from this generation through a culture of greed and idolatry,” he says. “We don’t have a moral compass anymore.”

Faulkner, a Republican, is running for the seat currently held by Charles Rangel.

Peter Grandich, who hails from the Bronx, says of Rangel, “Charles Rangel is everything that’s wrong with Washington. America is facing our greatest crisis ever and we mustn’t allow the people who helped get us into this mess be the ones to decide how to get us out if it.”
