As college graduates, we are entering a scary world. People are being deprived of their doctors of their choosing and access to hospitals because Senator Shaheen refused to put New Hampshire before her allegiance to President Obama’s radical agenda.
A few years ago, I met a man of principle and integrity who I know will always fight for those things. That man is Senator Scott Brown. Senator Brown embodies what a leader should be: A person with honesty, strong family values, and a dedicated work ethic.
Senator Shaheen wants you to believe she’s a moderate voice in the Senate, yet her record says she’s been anything but. Shaheen supports cap-and-trade, which will increase energy bills for New Hampshire families and cost you more every time you fill your gas tank up.
Scott Brown knows about women who are watching. He grew up in a household with a single mom who watched every dime she spent, and worked hard in a series of jobs. Much like Senator Brown, I grew up being raised by a single mother who supported her children on her own by working three full time jobs.
Scott Brown has two daughters around my age who are their starting careers—one a singer in Nashville and the other attending veterinary school in the fall. He understands the uncertainty young people are faced with when entering this new place called “the real world”. Scott Brown’s vision of creating more jobs and giving kids an affordable education through commonsense solutions is exactly what New Hampshire needs.
