letter to West Chester Democrats
It is my honor and privilege to endorse Bret Binder, the Democratic Party candidate for State Representative in the 156th District. While Bret and I ran against one another in the Primary Election, we kept things civil, honest, and forthright, because that’s the only way Bret and I know how to live our lives. Although Bret won the primary, I did not lose heart, because I know Bret will make a fine State Representative.
Bret is a lifelong Pennsylvanian and Democrat, and he is committed to fighting for the people of the 156th District. For these reasons, I will be campaigning with Bret and knocking on doors leading up to the election on November 6th. Likewise, I hope that you will also join forces with Bret’s campaign.
This is an important election and a critical time for our country. While many of us may be focused on the presidential race, we must remember the impact of local elections. The recent budget cuts to public education and social services, attacks on women’s rights and on our civil liberties, and the environmental give-away of our Marcellus Shale natural gas deposits demonstrate the ways in which Harrisburg is failing to represent our best interests. This local election for State Representative is considered to be the most important House race in Pennsylvania. Consequently, Bret must win, and I am confident that he will win with the support of people like you.
Bret has pledged to protect women’s rights, and has spoken out strongly against the invasive ultrasound bill which his opponent co-sponsored. He is also committed to fighting against voter suppression laws that have been designed to disenfranchise minorities and the elderly voters.
As a product of Pennsylvania public schools, Bret is also a strong supporter of our public education system. In addition, he will sponsor legislation to protect the environment, ensuring that Marcellus Shale drillers give back to Pennsylvania through a fair severance tax and are held accountable for safe drilling practices. As a small business owner, Bret understands the importance of small businesses — they are the backbone of our local, state, and national economy. Bret understands the need to earn a sustainable and livable wage and is committed to helping Pennsylvanians get back to work. I know Bret to be a creative and intelligent thinker. It’s time to bring a problem solver to Harrisburg, a problem solver like Bret Binder.
Please visit Bret’s website at www.bretbinderforpa.com; visit and like Bret’s Facebook page through the website; or give the campaign a call at (610)-696-5904 to find out how you can help. And, most importantly, vote for Bret Binder on November 6th.
