Letter: Warren is best choice for Senate


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — To the editor:

The Lawrence Teacher’s Union strongly endorses Elizabeth Warren to be our next U.S. senator from Massachusetts. I hope voters take some time to consider the important issues at stake for our work and our families in the upcoming election on Tuesday, Nov. 6. It is vitally important that we all do our part and cast our vote for the Senate candidate who will best protect our rights and our jobs. That candidate is Elizabeth Warren.

Elizabeth’s opponent, incumbent Sen. Scott Brown, has voted against workers repeatedly on issues that affect jobs and families. He joined his radical right-wing Republican colleagues to vote against job creation bills, against extensions of unemployment insurance, and against the prevailing wage. He voted against workers on these and other issues, multiple times. We simply cannot afford to send him back to the Senate.

Elizabeth Warren has spent her entire career working on behalf of middle-class families. She has earned her reputation as “The New Sheriff of Wall Street” by helping to craft financial reform legislation and establishing the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Our union has done the research. Elizabeth Warren is the clear choice for working families. Please be sure to get to the polls and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6 for Elizabeth Warren.
