Stand Up for Progressive Values – Vote Sestak and Hoeffel

This year it is important to reaffirm the progressive ideals of ADA by supporting candidates who will stand with us into the 21st Century. While Republicans take a purposefully negative and totally obstructive course that moves more and more to the far right of the anti-government tea party movement, we must elect officials who we can count on to stay with us on vital issues.

Consistency may be the hobgoblin of small minds, but we are consistent in our liberal values and we are proud of it! That is why we have endorsed Joe Sestak for Senate and Joe Hoeffel for Governor. In a far more fundamental way than the other candidates for these offices, Hoeffel and Sestak subscribe to ADA’s principles of freedom, economic security, good government, democratic planning and enlargement of fundamental liberties.
