About Martha Robertson
October 25, 2014
VIEWPOINTS: We asked District 23 candidates: This race has become a bitter one. Why do you think that is, and how does that help your constituents?
Truth about Reed's voting record hurts him. My mother taught me that when you saw something wrong, you had an obligation to stand up for what was right. That is why I announced my candidacy for the 23rd Congressional District nearly two years ago, because I felt that the working families of our district were not being represented in Washington.

Reed, Robertson clash on Medicare
By Jason Jordan, The Evening Tribune Across the nation nearly 75 percent of senior citizens (65 and older) are registered to vote, the best among any voting population.

VIEWPOINTS: What should the U.S. role be in the expanding conflict in Syria and Iraq? Would you support re-deploying U.S. combat troops to that region?
Mission must not involve troops. After more than a decade of war, Americans are rightly concerned about the possibility of another long-term, extended conflict in Iraq and Syria. But we also have the responsibility to respond —together with international partners — in conflicts where Americans are threatened, and terrorist organizations grow in strength. Striking that balance requires leadership. Read more »
