WEST CHESTER – Today, Mike Parrish, Democratic candidate for Congress in PA-06 received the official endorsement of VoteVets, the largest Progressive veterans group in America.

In a press release issues by VoteVets, Rick Hegdahl, Veterans Outreach Coordinator for VoteVets PAC said, “Mike exemplifies leadership. Whether it was though his three decades in the military, or as the head of numerous job-creating companies, Mike is just the kind of leader we need in Washington. Seeing that Mike’s opponent has backed Donald Trump-a person who does not have the temperament to be Commander in Chief, it is abundantly clear that Mike has far superior judgment than his opponent.”

In a statement issued by the campaign, Mike Parrish said “I am honored to receive VoteVets endorsement, and I thank them for the confidence they have placed in me to be a leader in Washington. VoteVets is a leading voice for veterans and the families of veterans. As a service disabled veteran Myself, I appreciate how important it is for veterans and our families to have a strong voice. I am proud to stand with VoteVets as they continue to stand up for veterans.”

“I also understand that the concerns of veterans and the families of veterans are the same concerns as every American family. Strengthening public education, addressing the student debt crisis, investing in our people and communities to build our infrastructure, grow an economy that works for everyone and create good jobs capable of sustaining a family, and making sure that our nation is secure – these are the priorities of veterans’ families and American families and they are my priorities. “

Nothing is getting done in Washington because leadership is sorely lacking in Congress. I plan to change that. In the military I learned that real leadership is about selfless service and that getting results takes dedication and hard work. I know that VoteVets shares those values, and I look forward to working with them to be a leader on the important and complex issues we face so we can get real results for our community, the Sixth District, the greater Philadelphia region, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and all Americans.
