Letter: Be a Knowledgeable Voter on May 21

on May 17, 2019 4:30 AM

Several years ago I moved to Lycoming County after spending most of my life in the Southwest. I love it here — the changing seasons, my job, hiking Ricketts Glen, spending time at our cabin in Sullivan County. 

I’m also excited that right now Pennsylvania has an opportunity to send Marc Friedenberg — a smart, hardworking and knowledgeable candidate — to Congress. Marc is an expert in cyber security. He’s committed to bringing broadband access to our rural communities, to ensuring affordable health care for everyone, and to protecting our fishing streams and game lands. He’s committed to fighting the opioid crisis and to holding the pharmaceutical companies that caused this crisis accountable.

Perhaps what I value most about Marc is his pledge to hold town hall meetings in every county in the district once a year! (You can reach Marc right now on Facebook or email if you have a question or concern.) Our previous representative rarely met with constituents, and even then, almost never with critics.

The fact is, not enough of us take the time to vote, and too many of us are low-information voters. We’re making this critical decision on the slimmest of information — and unwittingly voting against our own self-interests.

I’m convinced that if more of you learned about Marc Friedenberg— who he is and what he’ll fight for — he’ll be your choice on May 21, too. Remember, this is a special election held on Primary Day and ALL registered voters in the 12th Congressional District are eligible to vote!
