Re-elect Hoyer to pro­tect our bases

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I urge read­ers to sup­port for re-elec­tion Con­gress­man Steny Hoyer, a re­spected leader who has sup­ported our lo­cal mil­i­tary bases, with their many em­ploy­ees and their unique pro­grams, stead­fastly for years. With­out his sup­port, most bases would move else­where or be cut back.

He backs our fed­eral em­ploy­ees and re­tirees, as I am, from ar­bi­trary cuts to our earned ben­e­fits and un­fair com­pe­ti­tion. Fed­eral jobs are not guar­an­teed, and feds can be fired, con­trary to gen­eral be­liefs.

Hoyer works to pro­tect our en­vi­ron­ment, with grants to keep the bay wa­ter­shed cleaner, vi­tal to our lo­cal wa­ter com­mu­ni­ties, and our seafood. He cham­pi­ons many lo­cal fire­fighter and law en­force­ment grants and pro­grams, and at­tends the state con­ven­tion. Hoyer op­poses the ex­treme cuts pro­posed to fam­ily and com­mu­nity pro­grams, our na­tional parks, and es­sen­tial health and wel­fare pro­grams.
