Walden no longer listens to citizens

What has happened to our democracy?

I am a 75-year-old citizen. I was educated in public schools. I was taught that our form of government was designed to prevent abuse of power.

Over my lifetime I have seen this plan defeated. Today it seems only the rich are benefited by our Congress. Our system has been degraded by big money, gerrymandered voting districts and the suppression of voting. Our current congressman no longer listens to the ordinary citizen.

I’m voting for McLeod-Skinner. I believe she will represent us in Washington, D.C., and support a government “of the people, for the people.”
