Buttigieg offers inclusive agenda for Democratic nomination

I am voting for Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, to be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States when my Snohomish County ballot arrives on Feb. 21.

This election will launch a new era for our country. The next president of the United States must lead our country with experience, skill and respect toward an inclusive, hopeful future. That describes the executive leader that Buttigieg (boot-edge-edge) has demonstrated himself to be and the top-tier campaign he is running. In addition to serving as mayor for eight years, Buttigieg attained the rank of lieutenant in the United States Naval Reserve, including active duty as a naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan.

Policy isn’t theory for him. His ability to marry depended on a single vote of the Supreme Court. Buttigieg has charted an ambitious, inclusive agenda to move America forward. He has defined progressive and pragmatic plans to address climate change, make health care more affordable and accessible through Medicare for all who want it, educate and grow our workforce, develop common-sense policy to prevent gun violence, support veterans and put an end to endless wars, and empower marginalized communities.

I want to stand behind a president I can be proud of; one who has served our country and will work each day to make it better for everyone. Mayor Buttigieg answers our need for presidential leadership. That’s why I’m voting for Pete Buttigieg in the upcoming Democratic primary election. I invite you to join us.
