The Four Freedoms Democratic Club is proud to support Mikie Sherrill for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. She is running for the Congressional seat in NJ District 11. As a Navy veteran and former US federal prosecutor, Mikie Sherrill conveys her values, important issues for constituents, and leadership abilities, which she hopes to bring to Washington DC, should she win in November. Her point of view on important issues resonates with many Americans across all fifty states. She has the support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Emily's List, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the Human Rights Campaign, just to name a few.
There are so many things we could say about Mikie Sherrill, but here are some of her own words:
"Too many people in New Jersey are concerned about their future. Across our community, our neighbors grapple with how they will afford their homes, their kids’ college tuition, or rising healthcare premiums. Our seniors worry about the future of Social Security and Medicare. Parents worry about the world that our children will inherit. As a mom, I want to build the brightest possible future for all of our children and make sure that New Jersey is a place they can raise families of their own.
Right now, leaders in Congress refuse to work for New Jersey to address these concerns. From a tax bill that hits New Jersey harder than any other state, to the attempt to strip healthcare from 27,000 people in our community and attack Social Security and Medicare, to the lack of a serious infrastructure plan, they continue to pass legislation that hurts our state. Our communities deserve new leadership in Congress – Representatives who will listen and make the tough decisions to improve our quality of life. We need to get back to a place where our leaders in Congress work together to move our country forward regardless of what side of the aisle they occupy.
After a lifetime of service in the U.S. Navy and as a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s office, I believe it is important to stand up and serve again."
