Jane Sanders campaigns for Bernie in Cheyenne: "We need to create jobs where we're losing jobs"

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Bernie Sanders' wife, Jane, made a stop in Cheyenne this afternoon to speak at the Cheyenne Depot Museum democratic rally, April 5. Regarding Bernie Sanders' decision to run for president, Jane stated that "the icing on the cake for me was when we were at breakfast at Denny's while having this conversation, and a veteran walked over, and he said, 'your office helped me get my benefits that I have been fighting for for 30 years after my Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam, and what I've watched you do is so important that if you decide to run for president I will do everything I can to help you, I hope you do it.'," Sanders said. "He started out the campaign at three or four percent, and is now one percent behind Clinton and 20 points ahead of Donald trump in the polls," Sanders said. "Bernie considers himself a public service, his focus is on representing the working class of this country - the disappearing middle class of this country - to protect and create a vision for the future for the younger people of this country." Sanders stated that the purpose in this election is to help create a better quality of life for the people and Americans in this country. ​ Following the recent layoffs in Wyoming, Sanders stated that as part of Sanders' plan will be to completely avoid the pink slip process and instead work to create jobs in the newer energy source as industries begin to fall. "As fewer people are using the fossil fuels as an energy source, Sanders is committed to transforming the energy economy away from fossil fuels and toward this renewable and sustainable energy," Sanders said. "A program to do job training and vocational skills for people while they're still working, or right after they are out of work, and then invest in those communities." "We need to create jobs where we're losing jobs," Sanders said. *Charlie Hardy makes an introduction at the Sanders rally.
