Meet the Candidates: Manan Trivedi for Congress - 6th District

The following was sent in by Trivedi for Congress:

Election Day is this Tuesday, and everyone should get out and make their voices heard. Manan Trivedi is the Democrat running for Congress in the 6th District (which covers Phoenixville) against incumbent Congressman Jim Gerlach.

Trivedi is an Iraq War Veteran and primary care doctor who was born and raised just over in Berks County, where he and his wife are now raising their newborn daughter, Sonia. To read his full bio click here: http://www.trivediforcongress.com/about/

When asked why he is running for Congress, this is what he said: "Washington isn’t listening, and I share your frustration with it. I’ll fight to bring jobs back -- by giving tax cuts to small businesses, ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, and investing in clean energy manufacturing and infrastructure jobs. We can’t change Washington until we change who we send down there." To read about the issues he cares most about, click here: http://www.trivediforcongress.com/issues/


He's been in Phoenixville plenty, including talking about Social Security (http://www.phoenixvillenews.com/articles/2010/08/14/news/srv0000009092129.txt), bringing the train back to Phoenixville (http://www.phoenixvillenews.com/articles/2010/10/21/news/doc4cc0a7b284854169467194.txt), and just this past Friday at a rally with Governor Ed Rendell.
