A letter to the editor by Laura Beverage of Medford, NJ
I continue to be both thankful and proud that Andy Kim was elected to serve as NJ District 3’s Congressional representative as of November, 2018. Not only did Rep. Kim “hit the ground running” on the first day he was sworn in, he continues to hold fast to the many promises he made to the district both prior to, and since, his election. First and foremost among them is his holding of pledged monthly Town Halls in varying locations, with differing voter leanings, as well as a dedication to affordable healthcare for all, including those with pre-existing conditions.
On April 17th, along with a number of other stops at some schools and other local outlets, Rep. Kim met with several of his constituents at Marlton’s B’nai B’rith Elmwood House, a senior citizen HUD/low income assisted apartment complex at which this writer’s mother was a resident for some 10 years. Rep. Kim listened to, and was moved by, the stories shared with him by some of the residents regarding how concerned they are that the continued support for such things as Medicare/Medicaid, as well as Social Security and continued needed funding for low income housing, may be cut. Andy has pledged to affirm his backing of all of these programs, and thus far, he has followed through in both word, and deed, on those promises.
In return, Rep. Kim needs our continued support and gratitude for being a representative not just for a portion of, but all of his constituents.
