We are fortunate in the Sixth District to have a congressman who follows his conscience in supporting the interests of his constituents and responding to their concerns. I urge all residents of the district to cast their votes for Ben Chandler on Nov. 6.
We have an opportunity this fall to increase Democratic representation in the House of Representatives and to oppose the takeover by Tea Party Republicans. A vote for Rep. Chandler is an important step in this process.
Ben Chandler is a strong advocate for senior citizens, small businesses, military members and veterans. He continues to work to protect Social Security and Medicare — programs that would be threatened by the election of his opponent, Andy Barr, who would like to gut Medicare to give tax breaks to millionaires.
If you aren’t sure where your polling place is located, find out in advance from your county clerk’s office. Take an accepted form of identification to the polls with you — a photo ID if possible. Your vote is too important to lose!
