November 6 will bring our country together with each other in how we want to move forward and how we see our country moving.

I’m concerned about the future of my children and grandchildren living in a country that is headed toward bankruptcy. Yes, it can happen, and if we don’t change our government spending spree, it will.

They’re living on a credit card and we are holding the debt, along with other nations.

Did you know that because of our federal debt, every child born owes more than $100,000 in federal debt before getting his or her first diaper?

This is unconscionable on the part of our congressmen and senators. My vote goes to the candidates who represent common sense spending and balanced budgets. My vote in District 29 — Pittsfield, Clinton and Detroit — goes to Robert Engelhardt Sr., a Republican who happens to be my father.
