Ada Vargas, 23: About a month ago, the day after I became a U.S. citizen, I got a Bernie Sanders tattoo. I have yet to discover a person with so much integrity and so much honesty that I really wish to embody forever. I actually quit my job to work with a group called the Bushwick Berners — a pro-Bernie group in Brooklyn — full-time because I was going to work, and doing Bernie stuff in the afternoons and evenings, and it was not enough time to give to something that I believe in so much.
Kevin Harrington, 65: Bernie is the best candidate. I care about distribution of wealth, single-payer medical [insurance], and kids being able to go to college without being in debt the rest of their lives.
Katie Emerson, 29: He’s maybe the most honest politician that I have ever encountered in my lifetime. And I don’t think there’s anybody better to run our country. I care about equal rights; I support his college education plans,making the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.
Elena Clemente, 18: I really like Bernie’s college plan because I just went through the whole process. It’s so awful. My parents are working tons of jobs and I’m working to try to make it work, and I really think it should be free.
Belle Savransky, 31: We’re donating all of the money we’re raising [with the lemonade stand] to the Sanders campaign. We’re trying to bring our kids into it to teach them about giving. I love Bernie — I can’t even put it into words. I like his policies on health care, minimum wage, student loans. He’ll be able to level the playing field so that wherever you come from, you can have a fantastically wonderful, happy, productive life.
