CINCINNATI, OH | NOV. 16, 2023 — On Thursday morning Orlando Sonza, Republican candidate for Ohio’s First Congressional District, expressed his grave concerns about Greg Landsman's failure to adequately support our veterans. Recent reports revealing that Cincinnati area veterans have been forced to wait over 1,000 hours to receive the assistance they desperately need only underscore the urgency of addressing this issue.
Despite being aware of the dire situation our veterans are facing, Greg Landsman has consistently voted against necessary funding and support for the Veterans Affairs (VA) system. In July, Landsman voted against the National Defense Authorization Act as well as a bill that would have fully funded the VA. Landsman’s dereliction of duty showcases a lack of understanding and empathy towards those who have served our nation selflessly.
Orlando Sonza, on the other hand, understands that the veterans' issues cannot be swept under the rug. His campaign is focused on providing comprehensive support to those who have served, ensuring that they receive the timely assistance they need to lead fulfilling lives post-service.
Sonza's commitment to our veterans is unwavering. Through his impassioned advocacy, he aims to secure critical funding for the VA system, ensure accessible and efficient healthcare services, and expand job opportunities for veterans transitioning back into civilian life.
Orlando Sonza provided the following statement:
“My wife Jess and I are both veterans, and this kind of negligence is deeply saddening and unacceptable. We have both seen firsthand the sacrifices that our men and women in uniform are willing to give to this country, and to see them suffer like this is reprehensible. Per usual, Greg Landsman talks a big game of being bipartisan and caring. And meanwhile, real people are experiencing real hardships. I’m committed to changing that when I’m elected in 2024.”
