    While you have ably covered the upcoming election, I feel you should better highlight some important context. Four years ago, America faced its greatest economic crisis in generations. Employment was plummeting, and a second Great Depression appeared possible.

    Since taking office, President Obama has worked tirelessly to stabilize the economy and rebuild Americaís middle class. This hasnít always been easy, but we are moving in the right direction. We now have steady job growth, and recovery is under way.

    Now Mitt Romney proposes a return to the Bush-era policies of cutting taxes for millionaires and giving freer reign to Wall Street that led us into this mess. This didnít work before, and it wonít work now.

    I urge your readers to vote for Barack Obama.
