Vote Greene in primary

To the Times of Ti:

On Tuesday, June 26, there will be a Republican Primary. All Republican voters in the newly formed 21st District are encouraged to vote so that we can decide which candidate will oppose current Congressman Bill Owens (D) in November.

I have already stated my opinion regarding one of the candidates, Matt Doheny. Now it's time to endorse the virtues of Kellie Greene, a native of Oswego.

Her educational highlights include an A.S. in Accounting & Business from Bay Path College, a B.S. in Logistics Management from Syracuse, a M.B.A. in International Business from R.I.T. and recently graduated from Fuller Theological College with a M.A. in Theology.

Kellie began her political journey on Feb. 1, 2012, by declaring that she was the only principled conservative in the New York District 21 race. She wants to limit the scope of government spending and its intrusive nature into our personal lives. She wants a more responsible and constitutional government. She desires to lighten the burden of corporate taxation and regulations which prevent the private business sector from flourishing. As an international trade student she realizes how important trade policy is and would promote incentives to get businesses back to producing in the United States.

Ms. Greene is very humbled by the sacrifices of our military men and women. She’s a firm believer in maintaining a strong military and supports pay raises for the members of the armed forces, not Congress!

She knows that ObamaCare is not the right cure for this nation’s medical and fiscal health. She believes it is unconstitutional and thinks the Supreme Court should strike down the individual mandate. Failing that, she would be in favor of repealing this egregious law.

Kellie realizes the unique and diverse needs we have in the North Country. It is a huge district and each county seems to have different strengths and weaknesses. It’s targeting those weaknesses that will change the outlook of this upstate region. These changes can make a positive impact via infrastructure upgrades, technology expansion, energy and economic policies that take advantage of our bountiful resources, and invigorating the farming and agricultural industry.

I will stop here as this is just a small sampling of the many issues Ms. Greene would like to tackle head-on. I know one thing, she is up to the task. For a candidate to have come this far on a shoe-string budget and getting on the ballot is an incredible achievement. She definitely has the energy, determination and know-how to get the job done. Please vote for Kellie Greene. Thank you!
