Roby’s new job will mean good things for us

Dear Editor:

Our Congressman, Martha Roby, was recently named to the House Appropriations Committee. Being someone who has followed politics through the years, I know just how important this move is for our area.

This committee “promotion” is a great win for our area. With Fort Rucker next door, military issues are also very important to our local economy. A seat on the Appropriations Committee will allow Martha more influence over the spending policies that directly impact Rucker.

Most importantly, I think Martha Roby gets the importance of cutting wasteful government spending and paying off the debt. Her going to the Appropriations Committee means OUR Representative is on the front lines in the battle to reduce government spending.

I have confidence in Martha Roby. She’s a conservative who uses common sense, and she represents us well. I will be praying for her in this important new role.
