Brookhaven, GA, April 3, 2017 – Letter to the Editor, by Maureen Keane – As Americans, when it comes down to it, we all want the same things in life: freedom, affordable healthcare, living wages, security, and education.
Jon Ossoff can offer the people of the 6th congressional district of Georgia the quality of life we are all looking for. He is from this community; he knows what his constituents need; he has spent part of his career fighting against corrupt politicians and officials; he has had top security clearance as a national security aide and fought to end waste and abuse by military contractors; and he has worked with the military and intelligence community on counterterrorism and cybersecurity.
As a journalist, he has an investigative mindset. He understands economics and foreign trade relations. He has studied under political giants such as Civil Rights Leader and Congressman, John Lewis, and former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright; and he has worked within Congress, so he knows how to get things done.
He is an all-around player with an extensive resume that our nation needs on our team. He is someone who understands politics, but he’s not like the politicians we’ve seen that have been putting party over country. He’s for the people. He is the next generation we need to cut wasteful spending, create jobs, and fix healthcare.
Georgia has the opportunity to set the example for America as to what kind of leader we need given this unprecedented political environment to move us all in the right direction together.
