Mike Schlossberg: Congressional candidate Susan Wild well-qualified

04/28/2018

Morning Call Letter to the Editor:

There is only one candidate in the race for the 7th Congressional District that matches progressive change with a lifetime of experience at defending people like my constituents: Susan Wild.

When an immigrant family was thrown back into a Syrian war zone thanks to President Donald Trump 's illegal and amoral travel ban, it was Wild's legal work that helped keep the family together. When Allentown needed help after a multiyear FBI investigation, it was Wild who was called to clean up the mess and give the people of Allentown the government they deserve.

She isn't an ideologue on a crusade to make a name for herself. She's not a late arrival to progressive values. She's been fighting for us all her life, from the courtroom to the boardroom to the streets.

She'll do more than stand up to Trump: She'll fight to protect Social Security, Medicare, public education and organized labor.

Most important is this: She is a fundamentally decent person, and an intelligent, well-qualified woman, at a time when government desperately needs more female representation. On May 15, I'll be voting for Susan Wild to be the Democratic candidate for Congress, and I hope you will too.
