Kennedy’s experience prepares him for Congress

In his Oct. 25 letter “Kennedy name is candidate’s only qualification,” F.B. Townley says that Joseph Kennedy “is an empty suit” in terms of qualifications for Congress. In addition to his degree from Harvard Law School and undergraduate degree from Stanford, Kennedy has experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominican Republic, where he helped low-income people organize for community economic development. You don't get much more “real world” than that.

Kennedy served as an assistant district attorney in two counties in Massachusetts, where he had more real-world experience with urgent and difficult problems of society.
