Letter to the editor: Support for Bateson in Congressional District 4 race

Three women are running for Congress in our district, which is CD4, currently represented by Tom McClintock. He lives in Elk Grove and isn’t allowed to vote for himself. I don’t remember who his representative is.

If people missed the debate between the three women (it was a packed house), it can be seen at TTCTV.org (Tahoe Truckee Cable Television).

One of the women I support more than the others is Regina Bateson.

She is the one of the three that I think would represent me the best, and our district. She taught Political Science at MIT, for me that is enough.

Now I know others would argue that she may be too qualified. She isn’t “one of the people.” But she is.

She grew up in Roseville just like any other kid should. She worked hard and got her diplomas, and worked for the state department in Guatemala as an interpreter and more.

People should know who the candidates are who want to represent them in Congress.

Her website is Bateson4Congress.com

Thank you,
