Letters: Look at Sailer's record when voting

It may be of help and interest, before casting your vote in November, to know how Brita Sailer, our state representative running for re-election, voted on several issues in the last two years.

It may be of help and interest, before casting your vote in November, to know how Brita Sailer, our state representative running for re-election, voted on several issues in the last two years.

She voted against an amendment to delete a proposed mandate that all schools teach contraception to students aged 12-17 and voted against an amendment requiring family planning agencies to notify parents before dispensing oral contraceptives to minor children.

Also, she voted against an amendment that would forbid funding to state sponsored health programs being used to pay for abortions, voted for a massive transportation tax increase and voted for overriding the governor's veto of gas and sales tax increases.

She voted for a tax increase on compressed natural gas, voted against an amendment that would eliminate state income tax on Social Security income, voted against an amendment to reduce state income taxes in all brackets by .5 percent, voted against an amendment that would prevent increases in the assessed taxable value of a homesteaded property owned by persons aged 65 or older, voted against an amendment to provide local aid only to cities that allow law enforcement personnel to verify immigration status and voted against an amendment which would require a photographic ID to vote.

Based on her voting record it is apparent she favors abortion, taxes to pay for abortions, tendency to favor illegal immigrants and more and higher taxes.

If you do not subscribe to Brita Sailer's position on these issues you may want to consider casting your vote for Mr. Doug Lindgren, who is a pro-life supporter and is a conservative who supports less taxes and less spending, and believes people know better how to spend their money than government does.
