Editor: I will be happy to vote for Hillary Clinton on Election Day. She is the only presidential candidate that will protect our nation through policies that will bring our country together and that will work for everyone. I strongly believe she will make an excellent president. Here are a few reasons why:
She’s very smart, she works hard and she listens to people.
She works well across the aisle as demonstrated during her Senate career; she will work hard to make government work again for all.
She has grit; she was tough enough to put up with Trump’s bizarre and aggressive behavior in the second debate, and won all 3 debates.
She will be pro-active in our foreign policy; she’s tough enough to go toe to toe with Putin and smart and experienced enough to know how to do it.
She will work to protect our air, water, health, national parks and public lands, and she will make addressing climate change a priority.
She really cares about people and families; her career, writings, and actions show that.
Donald Trump is sadly and alarmingly the antithesis of all of the above qualities and policy directions. He is not particularly smart, he does not work hard (see debate performances), he does not listen well, he has promised to repeal our environmental regulations, he insults people and only cares for himself, and on and on.
It is critical that we elect a president who is conscientious and who will put her heart and soul into serving our country. Hillary can be that president, but only if we turn out to vote for her. Your vote is needed, so go vote on Election Day, or vote absentee if necessary, but be sure to vote (visit iwillvote.com for voting information). And while you’re voting, please cast your vote for LuAnn Bennett for Congress, and help elect a progressive leader to the House of Representatives.
