To the editor:
As a resident of Oakville, I have been unhappy with the current administration and our congresswoman, U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin. Because of this, it became my goal to get to know the candidates running to unseat Wagner in the Missouri 2nd District.
It has been my great pleasure to meet and become friends with Mark Osmack, who is one of those hopefuls. Mark is a south county and St. Louis native and graduated from Lindbergh High School before going to college at Mizzou.
He entered the Army and served two deployments in Afghanistan, serving 10 years before joining the Army Reserves. He has experience working in D.C. under U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill and U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth. He is a union supporter and was a member of the UFCW 655.
Mark is straightforward and happy to tell anyone who asks what he stands for. Medicare for all is one of those priorities. Mark also plans to work to lower the cost of higher education and increase access to child care for parents attending universities and trade schools.
In my opinion, Mark Osmack is a person who was born to serve, and he has been walking the streets of this city telling St Louisans who he is and what he is about. He learned in Afghanistan that officers don’t expect anything of their soldiers they would not do themselves. He believes Congress should set the same example by serving us — not themselves.
In Mark’s words, “Together, we can bring courage, dignity and trust to Congress.” On Aug. 7, go to the polls and vote for Mark Osmack for Missouri District 2.
