Letter to the Editor: Gluesenkamp Perez Understands Needs of District


Marie Gluesenkamp Perez is a working mother and small business owner. She understands that the hard-working folks in the Third Congressional District need fair wages and affordable childcare as we deal with increasing inflation and do our best to get by.

As a small business owner with my veteran husband, I believe Marie’s experience in the trades means she really gets the challenges that face small businesses and that she will work to support American manufacturing and streamline the services we need to run our business. 

Marie will fight to support parents by getting tax credits to cover childcare allowing more people to rejoin the workforce. 

As a former teacher, I’m also really excited that Marie supports access to career and technical training at high schools, community colleges and vocational schools. We need to be training and re-training folks to give them the skills they need to find a good job and a living wage and education is the way to do it.

Joe Kent is running against government rather than making sure it works for us and seems mostly interested in getting famous with his fear-based campaign. 

Marie is focused on us here in Cowlitz County and I know she will work to make day to day life more affordable and help bring federal funding to our district. Vote for Marie!
