Centre Daily Times (Sunday) - - Opinion -

I know I’m not the only res­i­dent of our con­gres­sional district alarmed by how an­gry peo­ple sud­denly seem to be at each other. It can’t be good for us and it seems to be spi­ral­ing out of con­trol. Now more than ever we need a leader com­mit­ted to ton­ing it down.

This is one rea­son I’m sup­port­ing Marc Frieden­berg for Congress. Marc not only has a com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing our com­mu­ni­ties with af­ford­able and qual­ity health care, ru­ral broad­band, and ac­cess to higher ed­u­ca­tion; he is also a steady, gen­uine, and open per­son.

If you’ve met Marc at one of the many town halls he’s hosted, pa­rades he’s marched in, or fairs he’s at­tended, you know what I mean. Marc has even cir­cu­lated his per­sonal cell phone num­ber! Why? Be­cause he cares about each of us and wants to know how he can help.

He has spo­ken to dairy farm­ers about their need for af­ford­able and re­li­able high-speed In­ter­net, to school teach­ers about re­sources for stu­dents, and to griev­ing par­ents about their chil­dren be­ing taken by the opi­oid cri­sis. If you feel skep­ti­cal about politi­cians, meet with Marc Frieden­berg at one of the many cam­paign events he hosts across our district. Then, de­cide if he is the per­son for you.

We owe it to our democ­racy to take full mea­sure of all our candidates, and Marc is there to an­swer your ques­tions, lis­ten to your con­cerns, and help you make your de­ci­sion. – Shari Ja­cob­son, Lewis­burg, PA
