LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Richards running for Congress

May 2nd, 2014    Author: Administrator    Filed Under: Opinion

Dear Editor:

Mr. Ronny Richards is running in the May 6 Democratic Primary Election for representative to Congress from the 2nd Congressional District.

His service to our country as an Army medic in Vietnam began his adult life of service to others. Although he retired from the Ohio Division of Forestry, he still stays close to the land by raising vegetables and making maple syrup for a local Farmers’ Market. Ronny treasures his family … he and his wife have four children and several grandchildren and live in a rural home near Shawnee State Forest in Scioto County. He is active in his church and his community and believes we all need to help each other.

He often travels to throughout the counties of District 2 to meet with local residents to discuss issues important to all of us. The values of Democratic voters in southern Ohio are his values. He believes that women should have pay equal to the pay of men. He also believes that workers should be able to bargain with employers about working conditions like safety as well as negotiate wages.

Like Abe Lincoln he believes that government should be “… for the people” not just for a few powerful, wealthy individuals. Public education done well is the best way to help children leave poverty and achieve their highest potential in his opinion. Ronny feels that all people should have access to the necessities of healthcare, shelter and food so they will have a chance at a better life for themselves and their children.

Join me in voting for Ronny Richards as the best candidate for representative of the 2nd Congressional District.
