I am supporting Rep. Adam Smith’s re-election in the 9th Congressional District. Anyone who has attended his town hall or other meetings will recognize he is probably one the most intelligent and thoughtful members of Congress.
Smith completely understands that improving the economy and job creation in the 9th is of highest priority. In addition, his support of the military and veterans – active duty, Reserve, Guard, retired – is unwavering.
With Joint Base Lewis-McChord in our district and his membership on the House Armed Services Committee and as chairman of the Subcommittee on Air and Land Forces, his position in Congress is of significant influence.
Smith has introduced in Congress H.R. 4058, the Veterans to Work Pilot Program, to further these priorities. As a retired Navy captain, in-country Vietnam War veteran, with 27 years active service, and with an active-duty Navy pilot son who has served in-country in the Iraq war, these facts are of utmost importance to me.
I urge voters to join me in returning Smith to Congress to continue his hard work and dedication to America and those of us in the 9th Congressional District.
