Letter to the Editor:
As parents, we have always wanted the best for our children. So when our daughter Kelly, who we raised on our farm in the Winthrop/Independence area, married a young man named Ben Lange from nearby Quasqueton, we felt blessed.
Ben's small-town values of honesty, family, and personal responsibility, permeate every fiber in his being. Ben and Kelly now have three little girls under the age of six. We know Ben is running for Congress for the right reasons- to protect his daughters and our grandchildren from the mountain of debt politicians are piling on future generations.
As parents and grandparents, we are deeply concerned about the type of country politicians are leaving to our grandchildren. We simply do not trust the current politicians to fix what they have not yet been able to fix, which is why we need new leaders to get us out of the current fiscal mess.
We know Ben Lange. We know his motivations. We know he has the courage to make tough decisions in a thoughtful and responsible way that protects the most vulnerable among us. That is why we are proud to stand with our son-in-law Ben Lange as he seeks to become our next U.S. Congressman.
