Re: “Election: Voters beware, O’Ban deceives” (TNT letters, 10/12).
Letter writer Robert M. Brown falsely claimed various outside sources were behind Senator Steve O’Ban’s campaign. Check his PDC records and you’d see that attack is false. O’Ban has far more people supporting him from within our district than his opponent.
The letter claimed O’Ban was out to “destroy public schools” yet Senator O’Ban helped add $4.5 billion to public schools without raising taxes. Does that sound like “destroying” to you?
O’Ban has delivered results--even my Democrat neighbors are voting for him.
He won funding for the JBLM I-5 corridor expansion—essential for congestion relief and jobs.
He helped lead the investigation into the nightmare at the Department of Corrections when 3,000 prisoners were released early and innocent people were killed as a result.
He sponsored significant reforms for the mentally ill and new accountability laws for when bureaucrats fail to care for vulnerable children and disabled adults.
He wrote a first-ever tax credit that provides an incentive for employers to hire veterans that started Oct. 1st.
He created a Maternal Mortality Review Board to help save the lives of new moms.
That’s Senator O’Ban’s real record and why he deserves your vote.
