For 34 years, I’ve lived, worked, and raised three daughters in the 10th Congressional District. I’ve been a county commissioner, professor, and State Senator for the Cape and Islands, and I know these are tough times. But we will recover – I’ve seen us do it before, and I know we can do it again.
I’ve been a leader on education reform, environmental issues, and supporting our small businesses. I’ve championed investments in renewable energy, created better opportunities for students, parents and schools, and provided better services for our small businesses.
Our budget deficit represents our biggest challenge when we look to make sound investments in our future. That’s why I’m the only candidate calling for an end to the war in Afghanistan. After spending nine years and 300 billion dollars, it’s time to end this war, bring our troops home and focus on creating good American jobs that can’t be shipped overseas.
I’m also for letting the Bush tax cuts to families making over $250,000 a year expire. These choices will save hundreds of billions of dollars that can be used to cut the deficit, protect Social Security and Medicare for seniors, invest in green jobs and education and set this Commonwealth and this nation on the path to success.
We need to send someone to Washington who knows the people of the 10th, knows our towns, and knows how to get things done – someone who will make sure Washington’s policies reflect the right priorities: creating jobs, protecting the environment, and investing in our children’s education. That’s my record, that’s why I’m running for Congress and that’s why I’m asking for your vote.
