Subject: Fwd: Bernie Sanders and Ty Waterman
TY WATERMAN IS RUNNING TO BE A BERNIE SANDERS DELEGATE!
1. WHO IS TY WATERMAN?
I’ve been a career social worker with the Dept. of Developmental Disablities, Dare Family Services (Boston), and the Atleboro YMCA. I ran foster care in Boston and Brockton for 19 years, focusing on helping people gain skills to help themselves. I’m a social worker, a therapist, and now am working for the citizens of Attleboro, Mass.
Two years ago I was elected to the Attleboro City Council. While serving on the Democratic City Committee for six years, I helped elect both Mayor Paul Heroux and State Rep. Jim Hawkins. Early in my career I served on the New Hampshire Democratic State Committee and worked for U.S. Senator Thomas J. McIntyre (NH). I’ve been a delegate to the Mass. Democratic State Convention for the past three years and recently was elected to the Democratic State Committee.
I’m a father of two adult daughters while living in Foxboro, Mass. (13 years) and in Attleboro (18 years.) My wife (Jan) is a retired music teacher who taught in Framingham. In my spare time I wrote the book "The Year the Red Sox Won the Series" about the 1918 world champs.
2. WHY I SUPPORTED BERNIE SANDERS.
Bernie Sanders cares about Americans … he cares about people struggling to make their rent or mortgage, affording good health care, paying their college education bills, and growing old with dignity, Bernie wants us to have affordable prescription drugs and a livable minimum wage. He wants us to live in a safe, healthy environment and have the tools to fight climate change. Bernie Sanders wants to help honest people who are seeking a better life in the United States. Bernie cares about LGBTQ people and their rights. Need I say more?
Bernie is a politician I both admire and trust. I campaigned for Bernie in New Hampshire and then organized his campaign site in Attleboro/Taunton, where Bernie achieved 31% of the vote.
3. WHAT DO I HOPE TO ACHIEVE AS A BERNIE SANDERS DELEGATE?
PARTY UNITY: As Democrats we need to focus on electing a president who unites our country. Bernie Sanders has endorsed former Vice-President Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States. I support his endorsement. Bernie and Joe both want good affordable health insurance, they both want to fight climate change, a much cleaner environment, affordable higher education, supporting working class families, and a humane immigration policy. I want to use my social work and political skills to help unite Democrats, to adopt a progressive Democratic platform, and together, with Bernie’s assistance, unite to elect Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.
5. I ASK FOR YOUR VOTE SO I CAN SERVE OUR PARTY ….. AS BERNIE SANDERS NATIONAL DELEGATE.
