Letter to the editor | A voice of reason in D.C

Rep. Paul Ryan recently introduced our congressman, Glenn Thompson, as “a voice of reason in Washington.”

Thompson has proved his ability to work across the aisle without compromising his standards and was recognized by No Labels, a national movement of Democrats, Republicans and independents who are dedicated to problem-solving.

This award only goes to elected officials who actually have sat down and reached agreements with others — conservative, liberal or anyone in between, as long as they are willing to work together to find solutions.

It is clear that those in the know recognize Thompson as one who is very willing and able to negotiate, lead and find working solutions.

His record of leadership on education, health care, agriculture, energy and serving our veterans shows he’s an effective and proven problem-solver who cares about not only his constituents here in the 5th, but also across the United States.

So for me, the choice on Election Day for Pennsylvania’s 5th District comes down to this: Thompson is already creating and crafting solutions and is committed to getting things done in Washington in a recognized bipartisan way.

This wheel is not broken; I intend to keep it that way.
