‘OUR DUTY’ BEFORE VOTING
The 13th District race involves two candidates who are new to politics. A look at their websites offers an insight into how they will represent us in Congress. Brent Ottaway does not take corporate PAC dollars, one good sign of whose side he is on. He believes that upgrading our infrastructure offers enormous employment potential and would also serve thriving businesses. What has been holding this back in Washington?
Additionally, in today’s technology-driven world, power grid improvements for wider broadband would benefit businesses and increase access for all citizens.
Brent also puts great emphasis on education. High-stakes testing has strained budgets at a time when resources are needed to prepare future employees and entrepreneurs to adapt to a constantly changing workplace. Shouldn’t retraining and post-high school options be more numerous and affordable?
It takes time to research. Isn’t that our duty before stepping into the voting booth? – Denice Rodaniche, Altoona, PA
