Janet Garrett returned to Lima on her campaign trail today.

The Democratic candidate for the 4th congressional district was in town, speaking to the Allen County Retired Teachers Association. As a former teacher herself, education is a top priority for Garrett. Among other topics, Garrett discussed with the members how she differs from the incumbent candidate Jim Jordan.  Garrett also reiterated that her third attempt at Congress has been a lot different now that she has a professional campaign team helping her along the way.

"We need to improve education and we know that," Garrett said. "We also need to improve the respect that teachers get in this society. We need to make sure also that teachers pension is protected."

Garrett said she was turned down for five debates with Jordan before the early voting period but has agreed to one, five days before the election.
