Edmond Democratic Women announces endorsement for Kendra Horn for Congressional District 5. For more information about Kendra or to volunteer to help with her campaign efforts, please visit her website at http://www.kendrahornforcongress.com/.

Kendra’s position on issues important to EDW from her website:

EDUCATION

Kendra will prioritize investing in our children by properly funding education, making college affordable, and expanding job training programs — giving every child the ability to compete in today’s economy. I will inform our legislators about preventing laws crafted by lobbyists to promote their own agendas and fight to simplify the language of basic policies; making sure families, businesses, farmers and ranchers can get and afford coverage.

HEALTH CARE

Kendra will fight to protect and expand access to quality, affordable health care by holding the insurance industry accountable, fighting to lower the cost of prescription drugs, and safeguarding Medicare for Oklahoma families.

WOMEN AND FAMILIES

Kendra has been an advocate for getting women a seat at the table and in elected office. She will be a leader in fighting for equal pay for equal work and expanding paid family leave policies for all Oklahomans.

GUN SAFETY

It’s time for common sense when it comes to gun safety. End bump stocks, strengthen background checks, and allow the Center for Disease Control to research gun violence in a meaningful way. I support the 2nd Amendment, and common-sense gun safety laws don’t threaten it.
