Why do we like Tom Reed?

We’ll continue working on solutions that generate jobs, support local businesses, and grow our economy. –Tom Reed

Why do we like Tom Reed? First of all, he is a Republican in a Red district; that’s all most voters need to know. Beyond that, his bio, press releases and facebook posts give a hint:

  • He has a wife and two children.
  • He says he likes hunting.
  • He claims to be one of us, a good old boy, from here.
  • He has a winning smile.
  • The youngest of 12, Tom claims he was raised by a single mother on a social security check.
  • His father, a decorated career military officer, died when he was 2 but Tom still learned from his legacy of service and loyalty.

What seems not to matter:

  • His views on current issues, which he mostly keeps to himself.
  • His votes in Congress, which he seldom mentions or explains.
  • His animosity to affordable health care and Social Security.
  • His cruel indifference to poverty among us.
  • His disdain for university education.
  • His mostly out-of-state funders.
  • His conflicts of interest.
  • His ethical lapses.
  • His personal finances.
  • His support for President Trump.

Tom is a challenge for his opponents for office because voters seem to like him and don’t care about much else.
