Name: Jonathon Boyd
Borough: Manhattan
I will vote: Hillary Clinton

“I support Hillary Clinton because I believe she has the most impeccable record of any candidate running.  She took an incredibly active role as First Lady, more so than what was typically expected at the time, which gave her exposure to policy and foreign affairs, and a strong presence in society.”

“Her record as Senator and Secretary of State shows us that she’s willing to work across party lines to achieve what’s best for her entire constituency, while actively standing up for human rights, safety, and well-being. These are things she’s been fighting for since long before her life in the political sphere, which is why I believe she will continue to do so as president.”

“We need a leader whose vision is realistic and feasible, and I believe Secretary Clinton has the knowledge and experience to come through on the promises she’s made to the United States and to the world.”

“I try to encourage the dialogue among my family, friends, and peers as much as possible. Some people have a negative view of the Clintons, and I’ve found that through conversation, I can sometimes show a different perspective and possibly change a mind.”

“When it comes down to it, I think the most important thing is defeating the Republicans (particularly Donald Trump) in this consequential election. So quite often, my goal is to unite the Democratic side and ease the tensions of this HIllary vs. Bernie battle in hopes that whoever the nominee ends up being will have support from the Democratic Party.”
