The two candidates on the ballot in the 15th Congressional District tomorrow are Republican Representative Glenn Thompson, and Democratic challenger Susan Boser.

WTAJ spoke with both candidates to hear a bit about their background, and the key issues that matter to them.

Here’s what each said were the most important issues in their platform

Boser:

“First and foremost I’d have to say jobs that pay a family sustaining wage. We have the lowest unemployment we’ve had in a very long time, yet so many people are still wrestling here with tremendous poverty, and it has everything to do with the kind of wages they receive.”

Congressman Thompson:

“First is workforce…making sure we’re bridging that gap for people who are unemployed, underemployed…and so helping those individuals be able to get access to the type of skills based education to qualify for one of these family sustaining jobs.”
