Thank you to everyone who came out and supported me this Election Day. Together we'll continue the fight for local jobs, we will protect Social Security and Medicare, we will reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act and we will pass tax reform so we don't balance our budget on the backs of middle class and working families. Thank you all, and I can't wait to get back to work. -Louise
Louise Slaughter's record of public service reveals that I can have absolute trust that she will support the following programs and policies that are important to me and affect millions of working-class citizens, and she will not allow any partisan political interests to comprise her support for what I believe are fundamental human-needs based issues!
Democratic incumbent Louise Slaughter is one of the most liberal members of the House of Representatives, and proudly so. She's quick-witted, a master zinger-slinger, and energetic. Her folksy populism marinates in an endearing Kentucky accent, but she can get down in the weeds, too — she's a microbiologist — and discuss in minute detail the best circumstances to grow algae for conversion to gasoline, for example.
