Murt showed devotion to duty by helping a family in need
To the Editor:
We are writing to thank Rep. Thomas Murt for his help to our family.
Three years ago, our brother was the innocent victim of a violent crime and suffered a devastating, traumatic brain injury. He has been fighting to regain his motor and cognitive skills since that attack. Our family had been faithfully caring for him and struggled to find a facility that would afford him a chance at recovery.
Someone suggested we contact Rep. Thomas Murt for his help since he has helped countless other families with similar challenges and he is Pennsylvania’s champion of human services. We were reluctant to make the call since Rep. Murt is not even our state representative, but we felt that we needed to try.
After contacting Rep. Murt, he promptly went to work and helped our brother. Murt never hesitated nor reminded us that we were not his constituents. All he cared about was helping a family in need. Rep. Murt personally visited the facility we were trying to get out brother into and pleaded our case to the professional caregivers there. Our brother was subsequently accepted into this facility, and for the first time in years, we have hope that our brother will make progress toward recovery and rehabilitation — all this thanks to Rep. Thomas Murt.
You hear a great deal about bad politicians these days, but Rep. Murt helped our family, and we can’t even vote for him. How’s that for compassion and devotion to duty by this elected official?
Time and time again, Tom proves to go above and beyond the call of duty for his constituents. I have seen firsthand the positive impact he brings to the community. Walking around the Capital Building after a night in town, I couldn’t help but notice his office was the only one on the whole campus occupied at 11:30 p.m.
For this reason, among many others, I give my unwavering support to a veteran, an educator and a dedicated public servant, Rep. Tom Murt. And you should, too. oceans to rise and puts more water in the atmosphere. By the way, this is occurring faster in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region than in other parts of the world and is fueling the intensity of storms like Florence.
This is just one of the issues that is occurring due to Republicans not protecting us or our environment.
We would not be dealing with the major water issue in local communities if we protected our environment to begin with and voted to ensure those protections. I wonder how long this problem was known, but the choice of those with voting power was to look the other way. I wonder how many people were hurt and how many properties damaged.
We need to vote for those who will protect us and protect our children. I don’t understand how we can continue to vote for those who do not keep us safe!
Vote for Sara Johnson Rothman for state representative in the 151st District. She will vote to protect us. She is endorsed by Food and Water Action and Conservation Voters of Pa. Our future and our children’s future depends on it.
