THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Wallace can make informed choices

There is only one opportunity for voters in the 2nd District to impact the national agenda and that is the vote for 2nd District Congressman. It is important that voters put aside the television commercials and make a good choice. I would recommend that you take a few minutes and look at one of the many sites where pending federal legislation is posted. You will see that it is not easy reading.

Now, do you want someone making decisions on your behalf who says he didn’t know his business was taking in hundreds of thousands of dollars of federal tax money (that he says he is against), or someone who has been trusted and elected by our neighbors in Leflore and Latimer County as the District Attorney, and served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney under presidents of both parties? The national Republican party is pouring money into our district to send someone to Congress who will vote as he is told, I for one prefer to have someone who can read and understand legislation and make informed choices on behalf of the 2nd District. That’s why I am supporting Rob Wallace and urge you to do the same.
