Letter: Voting for Spahr

I base my decision on who I’m going to vote for by getting answers to three simple things: 1) Does the candidate’s actions match his/her words?  2) Is the candidate qualified to make decisions that will benefit his/her constituents? 3) Is the candidate looking out for not only present-day constituents but for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren?  I can answer yes to all those questions for Cathy Spahr, a candidate running to be the Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania’s 160thLegislative District.  

She is an environmental scientist and understands that there is only one earth, and if we destroy it, we destroy the only place in which our grandchildren have to live.   She is committed to commonsense regulation as well as fostering clean energy in the state of Pennsylvania.  She knows that clean energy creates jobs. Currently, 66,000 Pennsylvanians work in the clean and energy business. As clean energy businesses grow in Pennsylvania, so will the need for more jobs.

She understands the importance of good education for all Pennsylvanians. If Pennsylvania has an educated workforce, that means Pennsylvania has the foundation of a good economy and a healthy middle class.  We need educated engineers, scientists, writers, tradespeople, entrepreneurs, etc. 

We live in a time in which our representatives have gerrymandered our districts to the point that our representatives select their constituents and not the constituents selecting their representatives, which fosters an environment of extreme positions.  Our representatives need to work together for the common good of all citizens.  Cathy supports Fair Districting, which is a step in the right direction. 

These are some of the reasons that I’m voting for Cathy Spahr.   Please don't forget to vote in the upcoming primary on May 15.
