Letter to the Editor: Top of her class

To the editor:

I strongly encourage fellow Democrats to confidently and enthusiastically vote for Jamie McLeod-Skinner for Congress. Her demeanor, education, background, and governmental experience make Jamie the best prepared to represent us in Congress and also the most likely to win in November.

Jamie has dedicated her life to public service. She has a lengthy track record of successes. Jamie is also the only one of the seven Democratic candidates who has previously been elected to a public office.

Jamie possesses character traits so desperately needed in Congress: She holds herself to a high ethical standard, she fervently wants to represent the constituents of the district, not the corporate or party interests, she has a strong work ethic and she values and respects the opinions of everyone.

Jamie is a genuine “bridge builder,” her goal is to solve problems by bringing people together. To accomplish this she often opens a conversation by asking a question, and then actively listening. She is a rural progressive who seeks out opinions across the political spectrum.

Jamie is acutely aware of the the complexity of the issues facing us. She is ideally suited to address these issues as our representative in Congress.

We Democrats are fortunate to be able to chose from such a strong, capable field of seven candidates. Jamie McLeod-Skinner is at the top of the class. Please join me by proudly casting your vote for Jamie McLeod-Skinner. She will be a legislator we can be proud of.
