Elections: Larsen is worth keepting

Congressman Rick Larsen will get this Republican’s vote in November. Since his election he has:

Been the voice of reason, intelligence and common sense; fought to secure $35 million for Prowler upgrades and another $17 million for construction at NAS Whidbey; voted for a military pay raise, yet has not succumbed to mindless flag waiving; has no hidden religious agenda; has voted to protect the environment; led the vote to correct a dreadful, long-time wrong that is being done to our disabled military retirees; fought to put in place pipeline safeguards; worked within the law to add 40 new border guards; has refused to voted for badly written bills that would not work; and instead has worked tirelessly to produce laws that are honest, fair, intelligent and will get the job done.

Rick Larsen wants to continue to improve public education, believes Social Security, seniors and women’s health care and our nation’s safety should be protected.

Larsen has done a very fine job during his first term in the U.S. Congress. Let’s keep him.
