True moderate

To the Editor:

Leslie Coolidge, candidate for the newly formed Congressional District 6, understands big budgets as a retired vice president of KPMG International. She knows how to explain the importance of funding bills before they are passed, and can help others understand the impact on our pockets. She will stand up for the rights of women, including reproductive rights and health care. She believes government should stay out of choices that affect our bodies.

Coolidge will vote to preserve Social Security and Medicare as the successful programs they are today, and wants to vote to reduce the subsidies to the oil companies that already make billions of dollars in profit.

Leslie is almost a polar opposite of her opponent, Peter Roskam, and is a true moderate. Please vote for this woman who isn’t lost to the system, as her opponent is. For information, visit
