Guthrie Launches Two Radio Spots

October 8, 2014

Brett’s role in passing two key bills highlighted in positive spots

(Bowling Green, KY) U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie’s reelection campaign launched two radio spots today highlighting the incumbent’s role in passing two key pieces of legislation – the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (H.R. 803), and the Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act (H.R. 3092).

“Passing these two bills showed that Congress can work when we bring people together to solve problems,” Guthrie said. “Eliminating red tape from our worker training programs and protecting children are two of the issues I care about most. I am honored to have worked on these important bills, and happy they have been signed in to law.”

The first of two spots, heard here, focuses on Guthrie’s bipartisan work to pass the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

The second spot, heard here, highlights Guthrie’s work on the Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act.

Guthrie has a background in manufacturing which gives him a unique perspective on a key problem facing our economy – workers needing additional training to meet the requirements of today’s higher-skilled manufacturing jobs.

“We spend all this money at the federal level to train workers, but there was too much of it going to paperwork and red tape and not enough going to the actual training. We fixed that, and we did it in a bipartisan way,” Guthrie said of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

“The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is a clearinghouse for services to help find missing kids and protect them from extremely bad people.  We need to keep the Center operating so they can continue to coordinate the efforts of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to help these endangered children,” Guthrie said of the Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act.

The ads will air on radio stations across the second congressional district, where Guthrie is seeking a fourth term.

“I know a lot of people believe that nothing much gets done in Washington. But sometimes things get done that really help people. That’s the case with these bills I worked on, and I wanted people to know that there are still problem solvers up there trying to find solutions to serious problems,” Guthrie said.

“It is an honor to serve in Congress. We don’t own these seats; the people do. And so I am letting the people know what I am doing on their behalf, and I am humbly asking for their support in the November election. I think I can continue to provide solutions-oriented, bipartisan leadership to the people of Kentucky’s second district,” Guthrie said.
