Our next president should be...

To the Editor:

Our country has been divided for a long time judging by ourpresidential elections. Increasingly that divide has grown angrier. People inand outside our country have used that divide to their own advantage. Voting isunderway, let’s base our choice on who we want to be, not on what we want thecountry to do for us.

People need the dignity of work. Fair wages and jobs thatbring everybody along. America’s middle class has always been our backbone butbeing in the middle class isn’t just about what you earn. Do you live in a safe neighborhood? Are your kids getting a good public education? Can you go to the doctor when you’re sick? Being in the middle class is a sense of security andwhat can be achieved on an even playing field through hard work.

Our strength comes when we are respected around the world,not just for our military might but for our compassion. Are we a nation ourallies can trust and our adversaries respect? Do we seek a foreign policy thatleads to a more peaceful world? Can we remain a haven for immigrants whileprotecting our boarders? Will we protect our planet? We can’t afford to lead withinexperience, fear and instability any longer. 

Our next president must concentrate on what unites us, notjust pleasing small groups within either party. A leader with experience toresolve the many nuanced issues that face him/her each day.  She/He will need to revive honor and dignity.A president who will place hope over fear, values truth over lies.

Our votes determine electability, leadership can only beprovided by a seasoned, respected, compassionate president. That’s why I’m proud to support Joe Biden for president.

Wendy LaFauce

Delegate 16th Congressional District for Joe Biden
