Letter: I'm James Marter, and I'm asking for your vote

To the Editor:

I’m James Marter, and I’m running for Congress in the 14th District that President Donald Trump won!

I love America, treasure our freedoms, life, liberty, Constitution and our Republican form of government, which must be defended by every generation.

I will join the House Freedom Caucus. Like Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, support Trump, put America first, stand and fight for your Second Amendment rights, respect our flag, defend our Constitution, fight for conservative pro-life and pro-family values, and support term limits.

We must secure the border, block immigrants from terrorist states and eliminate sanctuary cities.

I’m a leader you can trust with global experience in international business and manufacturing. An entrepreneur and small-business owner who meets with workers on the factory line, in warehouses, labs and meets with executives in the boardroom.

Life, religious liberty, faith in God, fellowship and family are the most important things to me. My beautiful wife, Jill, and I have been married 34 years. We are blessed with our four children and our first granddaughter. I’ve served my communities more than 25 years as a Scout leader, age-group swimming coach, youth basketball coach, precinct committeeman and Republican Party chairman of Kendall County.

I’m asking for your vote to keep America great!

James Marter

Republican candidate for the 14th Congressional District
