Together for the common good
Steve Helms for 135th
John F. Kennedy
As I meet and talk with the constituents of the 135th, three issues rise to top - the economy, education, and healthcare.
Our economy is too weak and we aren't creating enough good paying job opportunities for our people and especially our children. We lack the education opportunities that a changing society demands. Obamacare failed us - it didn't didn't cut costs as promised, but increased them and it hasn't improved the overall health of the people.
The good news is that there are practical and powerful solutions to these needs. Together, we can implement them by focusing on our common ground for the common good.
