Schrier will meet our needs

We have an opportunity this fall to elect Dr. Kim Schrier to Congress – someone who will truly represent us, the citizens of Auburn.

Schrier believes the economy should work for the middle class. She is prioritizing bringing infrastructure projects to the 8th District that hire local workers, expanding small-business tax credits, and passing a tax code that gives the majority of tax cuts to the middle class instead of the top 1 percent.

A pediatrician, Schrier is deeply committed to lowering health care and drug costs. She believes women should control their own reproductive choices and have access to the health care they need.

Schrier sends her son to our public schools, values PK-12 education along with our trade schools and public universities. As an educator, I appreciate she has this perspective.

Please join me – your neighbor – in electing Schrier to meet our needs in the other Washington.

– Vicki Bates
