Putting people over politics
& investing in our communities
— Catherine Krantz for Texas’s 4th Congressional District —
CATHERINE KRANTZ is an award-winning International Entrepreneur and Publisher, with 20 years of experience in economic development.
My name is Catherine Krantz and I am running for Congress because I think we can do better. Small towns in America are getting the short end of the stick. We are facing real challenges and we are so often overlooked and left out of the conversation. We are underfunded in almost everything: schools, roads, hospitals, and telecommunications. It is time to put people over politics and invest in our communities.
I am a Democrat running for office in one of America’s most conservative Republican districts but I can win because I know how frustrated we all are with low paying jobs, high cost of health care, lack of prosperity and opportunity in our communities. I know we have more in common with each other than with the career politicians who represent us and I know we all want what’s best for our communities. I have 20 years of experience in community development and think the most important thing we can do is focus on making our communities prosperous. We need more jobs, more investment in infrastructure, more access to affordable health care and quality education. We don’t need more politics. We need representatives who can put aside their differences and get to work. We need ordinary people like me who are willing to step up and get involved in government. Vote for me and let me get to work for you.
