To the Editor:

I was quite distressed when I saw in the news that the Trump Administration was separating children from their parents at our borders — some children as young as 10 months! To learn that the majority of these families still remain separated is simply not acceptable. That’s why, in the upcoming 8th District primary election on August 7, I hope to flip the House of Representatives to a Democratic majority by voting for Kim Schrier.

I’ve met and spoken with Dr. Schrier. She has what it takes to win this election. She’s got the endorsements and the right stance on every critical issue facing our nation. She is running a smart, hard-hitting campaign that I believe stands the best chance of getting the job done. And as a pediatrician with many years experience, she understands the long-term damage being done to these kids by our government, using our tax dollars.

I’m happy and proud to cast my vote for Dr. Schrier in the upcoming 8th District primary election on Aug. 7 and urge my fellow 8th District voters to do the same.
