Jim Marter for Congress (IL-14) Announces Major Endorsement from Veterans For America First (Oswego, IL) — “I’m excited and grateful to receive this important endorsement from the Veterans For America First. Their mission to support our veterans and first responders is a mission I share with them and I’m glad to be recognized for it,” said Marter.
“These folks deserve our highest level of honor and support and their well-being should be a top priority. It will be a priority of mine when I’m in Congress. I share the VFAF’s recognition that vets and first responders have service and life experiences that are valuable in all policy discussions, not just ones related to military, law enforcement or emergency health services. We need to benefit from their wisdom and be inspired by their unique sacrifices. They will a Representative in the House who listens to them once again and who will be a voice for them in Congress, once I’m elected.”
