A note from Martha...
Today is Election Day, and I respectfully ask for your vote in the Republican Primary for Alabama's 2nd Congressional District.
It is my great honor to serve you in Congress, and I'm proud of the work we've done. Despite a gridlocked political environment in Washington, we have been able to solve important problems and make real progress on issues:
-We fought to keep the 908th Airlift Wing at Maxwell Air Force Base and even gained an aircraft.
-We delivered a new, more conservative Farm Bill that saves taxpayer money and boosts Alabama agriculture, which is our state’s top industry.
-We fought against military sequestration cuts and worked hard to keep the worst of the cuts from affecting Maxwell and Fort Rucker.
-We have fought back against harmful regulations— like rules from the EPA that would unduly burden our farmers and foresters with unnecessary costs.
-We made it against the law for the federal Department of Education to coerce states to adopt their pet policies, because Alabamians – not Washington bureaucrats - know what’s best for our children.
-We worked with whistleblowers and the press to expose corruption at the VA and saw the director become the first one fired under the new accountability law.
-We are working with the private sector to build a Veterans Community Health Network that can be a model for the rest of the country. We aren’t done yet, but I believe we will take our VA from being the worst in the country to a point of pride that every other state aspires to have.
I'm a conservative who works to solve problems, and in this campaign, we let that work speak for itself. I have always believed that if you listen to the people, work hard, and keep your priorities straight, politics takes care of itself.
And, in Congress, my priority is this: Alabama always comes first.
Too many politicians are so afraid of LOSING their job that they forget to DO their job.
That’s why I’ve focused on doing my job.
My job is to listen to the people, do what’s right, and put Alabama first in every decision. That’s what I’ve done and that’s what I’ll continue to do as long as I have the honor to serve you.
Polls are open from 7:00 a.m until 7:00 p.m. Thank you you for reading. I would be honored to have your vote.
