Recently I had an enlightening visit with Leslie Coolidge, our Democratic Congressional candidate in the 6th District. Leslie spelled out her goals for serving in Congress. She explained how she would propose to cut Medicare costs and improve the image of the U.S. in the world. Her view is that the U.S. is still the only superpower, and with focused leadership, there is no reason we cannot have a very bright future. Investing in our infrastructure is very important to Leslie. A green economy can provide new jobs.
Leslie said she wishes she could talk to all 6th Congressional District voters face-to-face. Meeting Leslie has convinced me that we have a chance for positive change in the U.S. House of Representatives. We can make a choice between going backward or moving forward with Leslie Coolidge.
