Someone else who finds Marcy Kaptur a Worthy Dem

“Toledo, Ohio, where I reside, is an old Rust Belt city with bragging rights over very little. Two exceptions are: this is the city that produced the greatest jazz pianist – hell the greatest pianist – who ever lived, Art Tatum. And we have been represented in Congress for ages by one of the best, Marci Kaptur. But the Republicans in the state-house have redrawn Kaptur’s 9th district to make it run in a thin line from Toledo to Cleveland – some 150 miles – along the edge of Lake Erie, encroaching on Dennis Kucinich’s old district and forcing the two into an elimination match in the Democratic primary. For me, this is no contest: Marci is much the better choice. I hope she prevails.”
Life in Ohio, by Kevin Quinn, EconoSpeak, February 29, 2012

Marcy Kaptur has repeatedly stood up for Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

So, of course, she has to go.

Beeeeeeeeeeecaaaaaaaaaaaaaaause “… the Republicans in the state-house have redrawn Kaptur’s 9th district to make it run in a thin line from Toledo to Cleveland – some 150 miles – along the edge of Lake Erie, encroaching on Dennis Kucinich’s old district and forcing the two into an elimination match in the Democratic primary.”

Sigh.

Anyway, please send Ms. Kaptur some money. Win or lose, she’s gonna need it. Thanks.

Actually, I’ll sweeten the deal: anyone who can email me proof they sent Marcy Kaptur at least $10 before March 6 can be emailed an ePub or Kindle version of any one Wapshott Press title that has an ePub or Kindle version. Here’s the list of those titles:

The Wizard’s Son; Maiden in Light; Dr. Hackenbush Gets a Job, Dr. Hackenbush Gains Perspective; Storylandia 3, 4, and 5; Electricland; and The Lady Actress.

Any other titles (that are not adult content), same deal, but I can only send a pdf or ePub. Am I nice or what?

Win, Marcy! WIN!

One Response to Someone else who finds Marcy Kaptur a Worthy Dem

  1. Joe Bialek says:

    This letter is in response to the articles covering the Ohio 9th
 Congressional election between Marcy Kaptur and Dennis Kucinich.

    As a former strong supporter and campaign worker for Congressman Dennis
Kucinich I must state why I am no longer supporting him and why I am
supporting Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur.

    I worked on the 1994 Kucinich State Senate campaign against Anthony Sinagra
and the 1996 Kucinich Congressional campaign against Martin Hoke. During
those campaigns I came to know Dennis quite well. I had just completed a
run for Cleveland City Council in Slavic Village and wanted to continue in
politics. In fact, I still hold the record for most yard signs placed
during a State Senate campaign.

    What concerned me then and concerns me now is why Kucinich failed as mayor
of Cleveland and still fails to succeed as a Congressman. The only common
denominator is his lack of people skills. He does not now (nor did he then) 
have the critical ability to communicate properly with constituents, fellow 
lawmakers and the media in general. Some politicians are able to “re-make”
themselves. Sadly, Kucinich has chosen not to and look what this has
 resulted in for the previous 10th Congressional District.

    On the other hand, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur reminds me of the type of
congressperson we desperately need during these troubling economic times.
 She truly cares about her constituents. From the moment you meet her you
can’t help but be struck by her well-honed people skills.

    She has 
utilized these skills very effectively and look at the difference it has
made in Toledo and the surrounding area. On Tuesday, March 6, please
 support Marcy Kaptur for Congress and help give the new 9th Congressional
 district a start on the right track.
