Letter to the Editor: Corporations want Dickie Bell; send them a message

NewsLeaderOne reason the man who is our current president was popular during campaign season 2016 is that he was adamant about not seeking any corporate money to finance his efforts. He relied on himself and his followers to get him to the presidency. One reason voters in America were not all that wild about Hillary Clinton was the perception that she is owned by Wall Street. One reason Bernie Sanders remains popular is that people think he too didn’t accept corporate donations for his presidential campaign.

As more Americans become aware – by the day, it seems – that their democracy is being sold to the highest bidders; oil companies, industrial polluters, chemical companies, and banks, the more disgusted we become. People are sick of corporate money in politics.

However, in the 20th District, represented by Dickie Bell, we have a candidate who has pledged not to take one cent of corporate money to finance her campaign. That candidate is Michele Edwards (www.michelefordelegate.com), running for the House of Delegates. I urge the voters of the 20th District to join me on Nov. 7 in voting for an honest candidate who is not beholden to any corporate masters, and who will focus on her constituents as she works for improvements in education, health care, and protection of the environment.
