We need representative who'll do what he says
Letter to editor

Editor, I cannot be the only one who is tired of the status quo in Washington, D.C. Primary election time is coming up, and we have a tough decision to make. We can either elect somebody who is a career politician, like Buddy Carter, or we can vote for Dr. Bob Johnson, an Army veteran who has never run for public office.
In a recent YouTube clip of an investigative report, Mr. Carter was questioned about a bill he proposed that would put more money in his pockets and the pockets of his fellow pharmacists. He said that it was a “borderline” ethical dilemma and has brushed off that concern.
This “borderline” moral compass is not something that needs to represent our district in Washington. We cannot send someone with questionable, “borderline” moral standards to join the others in D.C. who simply are trying to advance their own private agendas.
Quite honestly, there has been so much “borderline politics” in this present administration that it has become the norm in Washington. It is time for real change and true, honest transparency, as we were promised from the Obama campaign trail.
I certainly feel more comfortable electing someone to office who has a proven record of upholding our nation’s values in defense of our country. There is a clear choice here, and that choice is Dr. Bob Johnson.
Johnson has been a longtime family friend, our doctor as well as a business associate. If you want to know what true transparency looks like, Johnson is the perfect example. He is a “constant” in all that he does and he is someone we can trust to take a real stand for the right kind of change in Washington.
I am proud to stand for Bob Johnson because I know he will be glad to stand for what is right. He is someone you can trust to do what he says he will do.
