I’m Stephen Bloom, state representative for the 199th district in Cumberland County.
In 2010, I first ran for office because I saw reckless government, out-of-control spending, and unaffordable taxes making things worse instead of better
Since then, I’ve been fighting to reduce bloated government and cut taxes, and I’ve been fighting to protect our freedom – – – because doing those things gives everyone the best shot to succeed
More than once I’ve angered the political “powers that be” – – – but I keep fighting
This year, I’ve knocked on over 4000 doors of local voters – – – Republicans, Democrats and Independents
What I’ve heard over-and-over is, “Thank you for fighting for us!”
A foreign visitor once said, “America is great because America is good” – – – and I believe the same is true of our community – – – we live in a great community because it’s a place full of so many good people
But, like me, so many of you are troubled about our future, with big government pushing taxes and spending we can’t afford, unsustainable debt and deeper division.
I’m respectfully asking for your vote on November 8, so I can keep fighting for you.
