LETTER: Andrews Is The Candidate Ready To Take On The Crisis Facing Our Republic
Recently I attended a gathering with Naomi Andrews at a farmhouse dating to the early days of our Republic. Standing by the hearth, Naomi spoke with gentle strength of the crisis now facing that Republic.
Naomi spoke of how money corrupts our democracy, with a Congress that follows the lead of whoever bankrolls them. She spoke of the failure of Congress to exercise checks and balances.
The crisis crept up slowly but the signs are unmistakable: a demagogue in the White House and wedges driven between us. Some fall into hatred, others withdraw into apathy. This is how we become subjects, rather than citizens. We have to respond immediately in the next Congress. Naomi is the only candidate with direct experience at the Congressional level as Carol Shea-Porter’s Chief of Staff, with the spirit and skills to stand for us.
John McCain reminded us: “Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here”. I support Naomi because I share her love of the Constitution and our Republic. I have faith in her to turn this crisis around.
