US House of Representatives, District 2: Mark Osmack
We’re excited to announce our endorsement of Mark Osmack for the US House! Mark is a bold and unwavering progressive who is deeply committed to public service. A passionate advocate for Medicare for All, he also believes in common sense gun control, funding education from pre-K through trade schools and community colleges, and focusing on treatment instead of incarceration for people suffering from addiction. Having served two combat tours in Afghanistan with the US Army, he has the ability to both motivate progressives as well as the background and courage to win over swing voters.
“There are many reasons why I’m endorsing Mark Osmack. He is in favor of responsible gun controls, he opposes Prop A, and knows first-hand the need to end the war in Afganistan. He understands the need to make our public schools the best they can be to ensure all citizens can be prepared to have productive lives.
In view of the current state of Washington, we need a stable, rational Representative.” ~ Jo
“Our Second District is so lucky to have a candidate who has the smarts, the integrity, and the attitude Mark has. If we want to be represented by someone who listens to our concerns and will work hard to help us, we couldn’t ask for anyone better than Mark Osmack. Lucky us!” ~ Beatrice
“I endorse Mark Osmack for Congress because he combines high ideals and progressivism with a solid moral grounding, honor, humility, and basic human decency. He does this with quiet confidence and without showmanship or self-righteousness. My ideal of a good public leader is someone who is concerned with the rights, opportunities, and well-being of each individual. To put it more succinctly, someone who truly respects individual human dignity.
Those who know me know my deep respect and admiration for Harry Truman. He was a ‘work horse’ and not a ‘show horse’. This country is sorely in need of that kind of leadership. Truman knew the importance of looking out for the interests of the common everyday person rather serving as the hired hand of special interests.
Mark Osmack is that kind of leader. He knows what hard work is, and he is interested in getting the job done. He can fight for what he believes in and win!”
~ Mark S. Krasnoff, MD
