If you are a Republican who believes that the Republican Party has deserted you to the far-right, read this Letter to the Editor submitted to the Daily Post-Athenian in Athens, Tennessee. It will help you remember what past Republican Presidents have done. Click here to see the letter.
It's Time for a Change!!!
It's time for the interests of the working class to come before
those of special interests and large campaign donors.
It's time we put people before politics.
Mary Headrick Announces Her Candidacy for U. S. Congress, Third Congressional District
Dr. Mary Headrick, a retired physician living in Maynardville TN, announced her candidacy for the United States Congress for Tennessee's 3rd District. The Democratic primary is August 7th and the general election is November 4th.
Headrick says, "All the people, especially the working families and retirees of District 3, deserve representation. They are not getting it. Special wealthy and corporate interests hold the power and benefits while the Middle Class shrinks and democracy falters. Too few people control too much money and power and they are grabbing more by “buying” a Congress that will pass laws and regulations to enhance their personal profit at the expense of the rest of us.
I will defend our economy, jobs, Social Security, Medicare, public education. We deserve value for our hard work and tax dollar. We the people of District 3 deserve representation we can trust, not uncompromising ideology. We deserve results, like a rise in minimum wage and to stop wasting resources in Afghanistan. We must be heard; we must restore democracy."
