Vote for McDevitt


To The Eagle:

A top-two primary election is on August 7, 2018. Three Democrats are candidates in the primary for the 3rd Congressional District, David McDevitt, Caroline Long and Dorothy Gasgue. While Gasgue, Long and McDevitt are all Democrats there are differences.

David McDevitt is the Progressive candidate. Long self-identifies as a moderate. Gasgue has said she is a “Libertarian Progressive.” McDevitt will work for fair progressive tax policies, a single-payer universal health care plan, a living wage, affordable housing, safe schools, affordable post secondary education and more secure life for all working Americans. He will oppose corruption in government and work to reform the laws that allow dark money to enter politics because he believes that a representative democracy can and should work for all Americans, not just the wealthiest few. David McDevitt believes that all Americans should enjoy “the right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.”

Long’s personal financial disclosure statement that she submitted to United States Congress House of Representatives shows she has heavy investments in pharmaceutical companies. Gasgue is very young and brave, but lacks relevant experience. McDevitt has the experience and legal expertise that we need to represent us effectively in Congress. I urge all citizens to please vote in the primary, and to vote for David McDevitt for Congress.
