A message from Charlotte A. Cavatica, Democratic presidential candidate

Charlotte candidate

Salutations! With my long history of literacy outreach, it’s no surprise that I am a lover of words. A brighter future for our nation depends on a single, exceptional word: E-D-U-C-A-T-I-O-N.  We all have to pick up a living somehow. Human, pig, or spider, one finds it far easier to attain an occupation both fulfilling and valuable to society when one is well educated. Some are fortunate enough to have their meals brought to them in pails. Most of us live by our wits. And in order to survive — to thrive — by our wits, those wits must be sharp. A vote for Charlotte is a vote for intelligence.

— Charlotte A. Cavatica,
