Curry: Democrats urge leaders to end war

The Lake County Democratic Club strongly supports of the addition of our Congressman, Mike Thompson’s name, to Congresswoman Woolsey’s July 19, 2007 letter to the President declaring that she will not vote for more funds for the Iraq occupation, except for the safe and orderly withdrawal of our troops. The letter has also been endorsed by 90 of our Congressman’s Democratic colleagues.

As the House moves this Tuesday, Dec. 11, to vote on an $520 billion omnibus spending bill, a bill that wraps all domestic spending into one package, along with billions for Iraq with no troop withdrawal conditions, we urge the Congressman to keep his endorsement of his colleague's letter in mind as the votes are cast.

In July our chartering body, the Lake County Democratic Central Committee, endorsed a resolution that, asked our Democratic representatives to vote against all further appropriations for military operations and occupation in Iraq, except for the singular, explicit purpose of bringing all United States troops home safely and without delay.

We are looking to Thompson's leadership to do everything in his power as our representative in Congress to speak for us. End this devastatingly painful, economically destructive occupation of a sovereign nation. Bring our troops home and leave no residual forces in Iraq. We're counting on you.

Rebecca Curry is chair of the Lake County Democratic Club, on whose behalf she writes this letter. See the text of Woolsey's letter at www.pdamerica.org/articles/misc/2007-07-20-07-59-11-misc.php.
