Mitchum: Not for Women


I am surprised that people have written in to say they want Chris Mitchum to represent them in Washington, D.C.

Well, I can tell you, as a working mother, he certainly doesn’t represent me!

He is against raising the federal minimum wage and is a member of a party that does not believe there should be equal pay for equal work. He does not support a woman’s ability to make her own health-care choices and wants to repeal the protections I have against insurance companies charging me more just for being a woman. And the real kicker is he wants to eliminate education funding for my children.

Mitchum doesn’t represent me or other hard working women and families of the Central Coast.
