ELECTION: A vote for Driscoll is a vote for Kilmer

I was disappointed to see that The News Tribune endorsed Bill Driscoll for Congress in the 6th Congressional District.

I have attended three debates, and he failed to show up to two of them. The one that he did attend was disappointing. His ideas weren’t particularly original or inspiring, and he had a hard time even articulating some of those ideas.

We need someone in Washington, D.C., who can clearly speak to the unique needs of the 6th District. Jesse Young can communicate these needs with passion and knowledge.

This is our opportunity to really make a difference in our federal government. If Driscoll makes it through the primary, we might as well say, “Hello, Congressman Kilmer” – another career politician in the making. Is that what we want for the 6th District?

I want someone who really understands this district and will be accountable to it. Young is that candidate.
