FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cassandra Shober, Business Woman and Community Leader, Announces Bid for 2nd Congressional Seat
May 1, 2012—Ventnor, NJ—Cassandra Shober, businesswoman and community leader, announced her bid to run for New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District on Tuesday. Shober is a longtime South Jersey resident and is active in numerous local non-profits including the United Way of Atlantic County and the Boy Scouts of America.
Shober says of her bid, “I’m running for Congress because New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District deserves a representative who will put middle class families, children, and seniors first.
We cannot continue to allow Washington special interests and Big Oil companies
to control the direction of our nation and our economy,” Shober continues, “With my personal and professional background, including first-hand knowledge of the challenge of running a small business, I have the skill-set, ideas, and steadfast dedication to stand up to special interests and get our economy moving forward.”
Of the current 18 year incumbent, Frank LoBiondo, Shober says, “Congressman LoBiondo does not fight for the priorities of our district and has spent his career voting against the interests of the people he represents. Most recently, he voted to increase the financial burden on seniors by ending Medicare as we know it, and cut education funding for our children and young adults all while giving tax breaks to the ultra wealthy and Big Oil companies. He has failed to take any meaningful action to address the unemployment crisis in South Jersey. He is clearly out of touch with what is truly important to the people of this district.” Shober points out, “Congressman LoBiondo has misplaced interests and plays partisan politics. There is too much gridlock in Washington, and Congressman LoBiondo is part of the problem. The House of Representatives is the seat of the people, and we need a representative who will work for and with the people. I
will never let partisan politics get in the way of the needs of South Jersey seniors, families and children. ”
In addition to running a business, Shober supports the ACBA Rockin’ the Kitchen events, raising money and awareness for Sister Jean’s Kitchen and Food Bank. Her involvement with the Atlantic County Bar Association allowed her the opportunity to spearhead the “Going to Bat for Kids” program where the ACBA brought 200 UWAC kids to a baseball game at the Sandcastle stadium.
She grew up in South Jersey with her father, a doctor and Vietnam War Veteran, and her mother, a biologist. Shober lives with her husband, Bard Shober, and
their son Dale in Ventnor, NJ.
and this on May 6th. Shober for Congress. I'm dumbfounded. It's idiotic and says nothing, but does expose her ignorance.... We get what we deserve if this lady wins on June 5th. LoBiondo will make mince meat out of this garbage below. G.S.
HIRE, BABY, HIRE!
The solution to our current economic situation can be summed up in one word: JOBS. The potential of the 2nd Congressional District is impressive. In this large geographic area, we have farms, beaches, tourism and manufacturing, and yet we face some of the worst unemployment in the country, with double digit rates in Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland Counties.
In order to spur positive economic growth, we need to stop giving tax breaks to the ultra-wealthy, Big Oil and Big Business, and instead return funds to our states and communities. When we invest in our municipalities, they can in turn begin to re-hire the police, firemen and teachers that are so dearly needed. Additionally, federal investment in infrastructure projects serves the dual purpose of fixing our broken roads and bridges while getting more of our people back to work. For every job created, we
have one less person on public assistance, and one more individual making a positive contribution to our economy . . . which, in actuality, is the only effective way to grow an economy.
Our District and our Country also need to be focused on innovation and technology, creating more opportunities for jobs, manufacturing and economic growth.
The answer is NOT to throw money at corporations and the ultra-wealthy while expecting that jobs will magically appear. It is high time that Congress stop wasting money in the hope that jobs are created, and actually create some jobs.
