Daily Progress Endorses Jane Dittmar for Congress
CHARLOTTESVILLE—The Daily Progress today announced its endorsement of Jane Dittmar for Congress, declaring “Jane Dittmar will be a different sort of voice in Congress. We should give that voice a chance to be heard.”
The endorsement from the Daily Progress comes two days before Election Day when voters in Virginia’s 5th district will make their decisions about who they believe should be their next congressional representative.
The Daily Progress focuses on Dittmar’s successful and extensive background and experience with economic development, her concrete solutions for “getting the people of the 5th district back to work and her mediation background.
“Like many in Virginia, we are tired of the gridlock, the grumbling and the grinding partisanship that mark, and mar, today’s Congress. We want a new direction, one that better follows the path desired by the people. We want a new voice, one that speaks in terms of unity rather than division.
Jane Dittmar can help give us that fresh start.
As the old saying goes: If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.
We think a fresh new approach is needed in Congress. We’re ready to try someone with a mediator’s skills and a mediator’s scruples — Jane Dittmar.”
“I’m deeply honored to receive the endorsement of the Daily Progress,” Dittmar said. “Getting people back to work in the 5th District remains my first priority and getting our elected representatives to work together to address the challenges of our country will be my first act in Washington. I look forward to working on both with energy and conviction as our district’s first congresswoman.”
