Rogers should be our next congressman

Written by 

To the Editor:

I am writing to ask for your support for Hayden Rogers for Congress. When I look at the two candidates running for the 11th Congressional District, I see a definite difference that does not relate to their political parties. Mark Meadows states his positions with “I believe” or other “I” statements, while Mr. Rogers uses “you” or “the district.” 

Mr. Rogers wants to do what’s best for the district and says he will work with both political parties to get that done. I have listened to Mr. Meadows. He hasn’t said anything about working with both parties, especially in the presidential election. It takes a strong person who truly cares about the people of his district to say that they will do what is best rather than pushing their own ideas.

 Mr. Rogers has experience in Washington but still embodies the best of our district. He is a family man who believes in education and bettering the people of this area. He supports the Lily Ledbetter Act, which maintains equal pay for women for equal work. As a woman, I do not know how any women could support a candidate like Mr. Meadows who is against this act. Remember, Mr. Rogers is here to support you — Democrat or Republican. Please support Mr. Rogers, whether you are a Democrat or Republican, on Election Day!

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
