McCravey’s responses disconcerting | Letter
October 12, 2012 · Updated 4:55 PM
At a forum at Lockwood Elementary it was disconcerting to listen to Dawn McCravey’s response to questions asked of her. Do you support the Affordable Care Healthcare Law? Isn’t that settled law? (Hardly a resounding endorsement.) Do you believe in climate change? That’s the prevailing opinion. (Opinion vs. fact?) Do you support a woman’s right to choose? That’s a federal issue (eight states with Republican governors have restricted women’s access to choice.) This last question elicited a moment of candor from Dawn where she described late-term abortion as the dismemberment of a baby.
It is concerning that Dawn is running on a singular issue - education - with a singular fix, charter schools, and is seemingly unfamiliar with issues concerning women’s health, public safety and the science of climate change. Rosemary is homegrown, an open book.
For 34 years she has worked on behalf of the First Legislative District for jobs, safety, and education from preschool to college. Rosemary McAuliffe is by far the better known, better qualified, and better choice for our senator. Vote Rosemary.
