Chris­tine Bouley Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor,

Mat­tie N. Dixon Community Cup­board eis pro­posal to do away with what they call “en­ti­tle­ments,” which helps put food on our ta­ble and keep our youth in school, will be cur­tailed. We know where the gover­nor stands when he says 47 per­cent of Amer­i­cans are not con­tribut­ing. We can­not af­ford any pres­i­dent who looks at al­most half of the na­tion as ir­re­spon­si­ble. f will be WKH fiUVW WR DGPLW WKHUH DUH some ar­eas in our cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion that need to be im­proved, but we can­not count on Gov. Rom­ney to im­prove them. We have to stay the course and trust there will be bi­par­ti­san sup­port in both the eouse and Se­nate so that the gov­ern­ment and our pres­i­dent can pass leg­is­la­tion that wLOO EHnH­fiW DOO $PHULFDnV.

The cam­paign is al­most over, we don’t need any more rhetoric or false prom­ises; we need a pres­i­dent who will stand for the peo­ple. ft is now time to vote and let our voices be heard; let us speak out on be­half of Amer­i­cans of all walks of life — for dif­fer­ent eth­nic­i­ties, for women and for chil­dren and the el­derly. iet us make this na­tion strong again by elect­ing a pres­i­dent with courage and con­vic­tion; let us stand to­gether on Nov. 6 and pro­vide our pres­i­dent with a re­newed op­por­tu­nity to make us proud. The time for de­bat­ing is over; it is time to make a choice to move for­ward.

iet us be clear, there is a vast dif­fer­ence be­tween these two men and these two par­ties, but we have the abil­ity to stand to­gether — one voice and one vote for a bet­ter to­mor­row, brighter fu­ture, and an op­por­tu­nity to change the course of his­tory.

LHW uV EH “fiUHG uS,” gHW out the vote and elect an honor­able man to this noEOH RI­fiFH RnFH DgDLn.
