HAVERHILL, MA — Today, Alexandra Chandler released a comprehensive 13-point campaign platform outlining her progressive ideas and solutions to the district’s challenges, the only candidate in the MA-3 Congressional race to provide the voters such a detailed look at her political agenda.
Her platform includes topics such as healthcare, combating climate change and bringing better jobs to the district, and she also describes her vision for national security, equality, and the benefits of a voluntary national service program. Moreover, she shows her depth in policy knowledge by providing concrete specifics of how she will address each issue to benefit her constituents.
Chandler says, “Voters deserve to know that their candidates understand the issues. Candidates need to be willing to take a stand and share their policy solutions to the challenges voters face — not just fluff or political boilerplate. I’ve written our policy platform myself and shared it now because I respect the voters of this District. I want them to know I am ready to serve them on all the issues — from better pay to national security and so much more. I’ll be ready on day one.”
Chandler, a national security expert and former Naval Intelligence Analyst, stood out at the Greater Haverhill Indivisible candidate forum this weekend with her knowledge of specific policies and used her own personal history to show her understanding of the issues facing the middle and working class. During closing remarks, she chose to address several issues, including the opioid epidemic and potential solutions in the district that has seen some of the highest numbers of opioid overdoses in Massachusetts.
Alexandra Chandler is running for Congress in the third Congressional District of Massachusetts. The seat is currently held by Niki Tsongas who will not seek reelection. Chandler’s experience in national security, healthcare administration, and as a wife, mother, and transgender woman, give her a broad and unique perspective on the issues facing the 3rd Congressional District.
