Re-elect Hoyer to protect our bases
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.
