Letter to the Editor: We need a new voice

To the editor:

I am voting for Jamie McLeod-Skinner. I want a representative who takes climate change seriously and supports science.

I want a representative who respects human life and dignity, not someone who would support taking young children away from parents or someone who would support selling arms to a country we know will use the weapons against their own people.

I want a congressperson that will be independent, not one in lock step with the president when the president’s tactics challenge the core values of our democracy.

Greg Walden has chosen allegiance with his party and the president over the needs and values of his constituents. This hasn’t always been the case, but times and circumstances have changed enough that Greg Walden is now aligned with the craziness that is making waste of our ideals and our relationships with our allies.

It is time for Greg Walden’s very long political career to end and time to start fresh with a new voice representing the Second Congressional District. Please join me in voting for Jamie McLeod-Skinner.
