Veterans

Cindy believes we owe no greater debt than to the men and women, and their families, who have served our country.  

In Congress, Cindy will continue to fight to make sure Washington takes care of all of our veterans and their families. She will look at policies to ensure that veterans have the skills they need for good-paying jobs and access to quality, affordable health care.
