Vote Dady for Congress

We all like choices. This year we have a choice.

We have many important issues on which to vote Nov. 6, but none are more important than who we send to Washington to represent us in Congress.

Sara Dady is my choice. She represents my values and would share my voice in Congress. I think I am not alone.

Sara is a small business owner who understands our struggle to provide health care for ourselves, our families and our employees. Sara supports affordable health care for all. Her opponent votes to cut it.

We all know that the federal minimum wage of $7.25 is not a livable wage and that government handouts will not replace losses from tariff wars. Sara supports fairer pay and stable markets.

Separating children from their parents is cruel and does not replace workable immigration law. Sara is uniquely qualified to work across the aisle to create just such law.

Our young people are concerned with Social Security. Our current representative supports benefits for current retirees but is eerily quiet about the future. Sara knows the importance of this benefit for all of us, including young working adults.

Tax breaks for the wealthy only make them more wealthy and burden us with an additional 1.2 TRILLION DOLLARS of debt. Our current representative voted for that deal.

Sara Dady supports legislation that helps us build a stronger middle class.

Our current representative is part and parcel of the current dysfunctional Congress and supports the chaos in the Oval Office. He thinks we will vote for him because we always have. I think he is wrong.

We have a choice in November. My choice is Sara Dady.

Mary Ann Smith
