It is time to bring about a robust economy, bring back jobs, and improve education so that everyone gets an opportunity to succeed. We’ve got to grow and expand the middle class and provide rewards for hard-working people.” This is Fay’s fourth run for office in four years and she will face off against Democrat incumbent John Larson.
