Voting for Anderson

To the Editor:

With each encounter with Dennis Anderson, Democratic candidate for Congress in the 14th District, I come away more firmly convinced that he is the right person to represent this district.

Anderson not only has a grasp of the issues, but he has a way of working with people that only can contribute to a more positive atmosphere in Washington. He has the ability to work with people, even those people with whom he might disagree. He knows the value of compromise, a dirty word for many, and a skill badly lacking in the person who currently “represents” this district, Randy Hultgren.

We need representatives who are willing to reach across the aisle in a spirit of bipartisanship because a Congress so badly divided cannot serve the American people nor the needs of this district.

Anderson is intelligent, thoughtful and principled; he is a good listener. While one person cannot change the entire climate of the House of Representatives, Anderson provides the best choice to take a step in that direction. I believe his leadership and people skills will make a positive contribution in Congress.

I will cast my vote for Dennis on Nov. 4, and I challenge Hultgren to have the courage to debate with Anderson on the issues.
