I’d like to ask for your support today, Tuesday, Aug. 2, as you vote in the primary election for Democrat in the U.S. House District 4.
I’m running for Congress to bring jobs to Kansas’ hard working families. My efforts have gained the backing of The Wichita Eagle and labor organizations across the state.
The Eagle wrote in its “Endorsements for Aug. 2 primary”: “Daniel B. Giroux is the best choice. … Giroux is well-versed on the issues and has the skills to be an effective member of Congress.”
My endorsements so far include these groups:
- The Wichita Eagle
- Kansas State American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations
- (KS AFL-CIO)
- Kansas State Council of Firefighters (KSCFF)
- LiUNA!: Midwest Region Laborers’ Political League
- LiUNA!: Midwest Region Laborers’ Political League — Local Union 1290
- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
- Local 271 (IBEW)
- Plumbers and Pipefitters Local Union 441 (UA)
- Kansas Building and Construction Trades Council
- Kansas State Council of Machinists
These groups have recommended me because my commitments to concepts such as job creation and economic growth, fair trade, fair pay and fair taxes.
I believe strongly in supporting our families through all parts of life with affordable higher education and keeping the promise of Social Security. To achieve the American promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, we must end all forms of discrimination. That promise also increasingly rests on our need for increased access to affordable health care — working families should never go bankrupt to pay for lifesaving care.
As a nation, we must uphold our duty to care for our veterans as they swore to defend us; we must end veteran homelessness, provide treatment and fully staff and fund our Veterans Affairs facilities.
I believe in getting dark money and special interests out of politics and taking the “For Sale” sign off our great American democracy.
We are a nation of immigrants, and we need immigration reform to establish a pathway to citizenship for those living responsibly and secure our borders once and for all to keep our country safe.
And we must have a principled foreign policy to reinforce around the globe our American values through strong diplomacy, a strong economy, and a strong national defense.
