“The most important investment a community–and a family–can make is in education. From preschool through community college and beyond, education is key to growing families, growing communities, and growing economies. Strong schools attract people to a region, and encourage them to stay.” — Martha Robertson
I wondered what measures NY-23 Congressional candidate Martha Robertson favors. I turned to her web page to find out. Here is what I learned:
- Martha favors action to reduce the burden of student loan debt. (June 17)
- Martha opposes tax breaks for the rich and super-rich (April 2).
- Martha says: I’m running for Congress to help break the gridlock that’s prevented America from building a stronger economy that benefits everyone. Government can’t do it alone; we must forge public/private partnerships and bipartisan alliances to address the top issues facing us: creating high-quality jobs, prioritizing education, and protecting Medicare and Social Security. (March 9)
- Martha Robertson announced her support for preschool for low- and middle-income children (February 9)
- Martha would Extend benefits for the jobless (January 10).
Martha’s “priorities” page is especially helpful in understanding her views.
Martha’s biggest contribution may be to help end Republican control of the House, where current mis-leaders refuse to bring necessary measures to a vote.
