JOHN MIRRIONE FOR CONGRESS
MIRRIONE SEEKS TO UTILIZE NEW WAYS FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY
Tenth District Candidate John Mirrione is looking to revitalize the American economy as a Congressman with focusing on a key point—jobs.
The national unemployment rate currently stands at 8.4% based on the August numbers. This represents the first time the rate has been under ten percent since the Coronavirus pandemic struck the nation hard in early Spring. Although the number is improving, the Libertarian Candidate believes there is still a lot to be done.
“As a nation, there are needs…and people who are willing to work to fill those voids,” says Mirrione. “One of the things this pandemic has shown us is that our nation’s food supply is not as reliable as it should be”. Mirrione refers to his plan to use opportunity zones that have abandoned buildings that can be used by investors to create vertical agriculture businesses to provide organic food and jobs for every community. “This is a win-win for society and we should see more of this,” declares Mirrione. “Here you have people getting a second chance at turning around their lives and benefitting society by supplying food to those in need—like our families (which include children) living in poverty and difficult times.” Mirrione believes that programs like this should be utilized in communities all across the country, but to have them open for people who are out of work and searching for new employment as soon as possible. “Working is not just about getting a paycheck,” says Mirrione. “Working is about preserving human dignity and establishing purpose—these qualities need to be reestablished within our society to move forward.”
The 55-year old Karate Guru, business owner, and world record holder points to his own childhood for being motivated to getting Americans back to work and uplifting families out of poverty. “As a kid, I was homeless,” states Mirrione. “I know what it is like to wonder where the room over my head was going to be from day-to-day, or when a next meal was coming…no child in America should ever have to feel this pain and anxiety, but we have far too many that do.” Currently, nearly 1 in 5 children in America live in poverty and the newest projections from Feeding America does not provide much hope as the organization indicated that, under the current conditions, by the end of 2020, 54 million Americans will be food insecure—including making 1 in 4 American children food insecure.
Mirrione agrees with economists who say that stabilizing the workforce helps in paying for programs such as Social Security and Medicare, but points out this is more about reaching the soul of the American family. “We need to get people back to work to reestablish their sense of dignity and purpose in life…and to give our children security and stability,” says Mirrione. “Our children deserve the very best environment possible to grow into becoming that beacon of light the American dream has to offer.”
