As America tried to come to terms with the economic collapse of 2007, people turned to Washington for answers. However, it became clear that the people we elected to represent us were more concerned with scoring political points than solving real issues. Even as national polling placed Congressional approval ratings at a 9% average, they still didn’t listen.
The problem is not associated with one particular individual, it reflects the overall mentality within the institution. It’s time to put Congress back on track and that begins by electing representatives, not politicians. We must elect individuals who will represent the needs of their district. This is the founding principle of the House of Representatives, as established by the framers of our Constitution, and it’s the value embodied by Geoffrey Petzel.
The current Congressman has worked his way through the ranks of House leadership by voting with his party over 90% of the time.
We need a representative in Washington who understands our issues, who has faced the same challenges. We need a strong and independent voice who will stand apart from the special interest groups and stand with the people of the 6th Congressional District.
We need Geoffrey Petzel in Congress.
