Translates to Congress

To the Editor:

Leslie Coolidge is my choice to represent the 6th District in Congress. Coolidge’s experience as a CPA partner for KPMG LLP gives her an understanding of working within a budget, which translates to Congress. To balance our budget and maintain a strong national credit rating, Coolidge understands that the funding for a bill must be in place before it is passed, not just an afterthought.

Thoroughly comprehending the deficit, tax policy, and the needed reforms of abuses that led to the recession are vital to our recovery, and Coolidge possesses this knowledge. Coolidge will focus on job creation and help the middle class by bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.

Coolidge is committed to protecting our environment and has been endorsed by the Sierra Club. Coolidge recognizes that by creating green jobs, we not only will help boost the economy, but help protect the environment for our children.
