Letter to the Editor: Watson Has Real Life Experience

Primary ballots have been sent. It is time to vote for a candidate who wants change, fiscal responsibility, a strong national defense and can defeat Rep. Lois Capps. Tom Watson is such a candidate.

Watson has real life experience. He brings extensive experience in both the military and private sector. As a retired naval officer, flier and Top Gun graduate, his experience gives him a unique perspective and understanding of the challenges facing our military and national security. We need someone who is pro-America, tough and will stand up to Islamic terrorism.

On the private-sector side, Watson has extensive business experience. He has worked for IBM and helped start two high-tech companies. As a result, he knows about fiscal responsibility, making payroll and what it takes to succeed in the private sector. He will say no to more taxes, excess spending and government control.

It is time for positive change. Vote for Tom Watson for Congress, 23rd District. It’s the first step to send Capps to deserved retirement.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
