Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Would Serve The Electorate

Voters in the 8th Congressional District can send a new, moderate voice to Congress if they elect Thomas Oh. The son of Korean immigrants, Thomas served in the U.S. Army as an airborne ranger. He is fully committed to protecting the freedoms and opportunities that our nation has valued since its founding. He understands and lives the challenges being presented to young people who have to establish their careers and finances without the benefit of family money and connections, unlike his opponent. He has been endorsed by BlakPAC (the Black, Latin, Asian Knowledge Political Action Committee) for his platform and understanding of complex cultural issues.

I support his platform to: strengthen the military, reduce then eliminate the deficit, support the Second Amendment, eliminate employment discrimination, protect the environment, reduce the tax burden, modernize education, and increase school choice. In his campaign appearances it is easy to see his passion for providing appropriate and adequate health care for our veterans and his genuine concern for constituent services.

Thomas believes that election to Congress is not a promotion above the electorate, but a commitment to serve them. He stands for the principles of the Constitution, the rule of law, and the presumption of innocence. Those principles seem to hang in the balance now, and Alexandria voters can tip the scales. Thomas Oh’s values would serve us all well if he is elected to represent us in Congress.
