I just received the following e-mail. Here it is word for word...
Mary Pallant for Congress
Turning the 24th Blue!
I want my daughters to grow up in an America they can be proud of. An America that is a leader in the world and a protector of the liberties that we often take for granted and that others in the world would die to have. I have come to realize, that to be silent in the governing of our republic is too great a risk, and what we risk does not just threaten us, but makes the world more difficult and treacherous for our children and others who will come long after we are gone.
We have a responsibility to secure the legacy of a strong and free America, just as those who came before us did. This is why I am running for Congress....But a leader must also go in with a plan and with priorities. I am running for Congress to:
End the War in Iraq
Restore fiscal responsibility to the Federal Government
Protect Social Security
