Camas resident Marie Treadway shares her thoughts on the 3rd Congressional District race for U.S. representative
This is election year is critical – the world is facing a climate crisis threatening imminent devastation, our economy still clings to outdated, dwindling resources and failing commodities, and social upheaval is manifesting in hatred, violence, and attacks on our civil liberties as legislators attempt to drag us centuries backward.
That’s why I’m writing to implore your readers to vote for Marie Gluesenkamp Perez for Congress, a working-class mom and business owner with a degree in economics who will fight for our rights. She will invest in the next generation of industry and infrastructure to advance our antiquated economy by embracing innovation. She will work to ensure working families have a fighting chance to realize the American dream again and afford fundamental necessities like healthcare, fuel to drive to work, and higher education for their kids.
Her opponent is a dangerous extremist afraid of progress who will defund education, ban abortion nationally, and gamble away Medicare and Social Security through privatization. His vocal support of Trump, white nationalists, and the January 6 insurrection speak volumes about his radical, white supremacist agenda.
Please vote for Marie Gluesenkamp Perez to protect our future and defend this democracy!
