Letter To The Editor
The first thing that struck me about Amy Kennedy is her ability to listen intently, not getting ahead of herself with a reply and comprehending the thoughts being conveyed. Amy looks you in the eye, focused. It is a rarity these days, and a gift to be on the receiving end. Amy Kennedy is special because now is the precise time when we need someone just like her, to be our Congresswoman. Born and raised in South Jersey, a Mom and married to former Congressman Patrick Kennedy. Her Dad was a Freeholder, her Mom like her, a teacher. She could have lived anywhere, but she chose to stay in South Jersey because this is home. Raised working class, she had an uncle who was a mailman, and she told me about him, how he was one of the longest serving in the history of the Postal Service and she listened and understood my experiences as a letter carrier. The Democratic primary is July 7th, but it has already begun because mail-in ballots are on the way. Amy has the drive, intellect, compassion, name recognition, and the backing from many people just like you and me. It’s up to us, we can rid ourselves of Boss politics and the baggage that goes with it. Make your choice for President and Senate then look to the right for Team Amy Kennedy in column F of the Cumberland County ballot, because it’s an “easy reach” when you consider the rewards. In Cape May County Amy can be found in column 5. And in Atlantic County, it’s column A, right under Joe Biden. Make your pick for Senate, but don’t be distracted, come back to Amy because that’s the way we win on November 3rd!
