Candidate Biography

Meet Cindy Werner – a small business owner (Great American Comfort Shoes Inc), Christian, mother of 7, Grass roots Republican activist, Civic leader (former School Board Trustee), Army Veteran. Cindy Werner grew up with 12 brothers and sisters and was raised by a single mom (her dad passed away when she was young). Werner’s mother worked two jobs to buy a home and get her family out of the housing projects. She taught her children the importance of giving back to others, often with the refrain that “to those whom much is given, much is expected in return.” Being raised by a strong, God fearing woman led Werner to a life dedicated to helping people regardless of their circumstances. Cindy Werner proudly served in the US Army where she learned the importance of working with a diverse population. This skillset still serves her today. She knows what it takes to get hard work done. Through “Women Off Welfare,” Werner worked tirelessly to provide welfare recipients with access to training and meaningful careers. She has served in the healthcare, education and housing industries, always with a focus on improving the lives of those whom she has served. Cindy Werner has worked with elected officials to bring about real welfare reform through programs that provide a hand up, not a handout. She is a strong proponent of providing technical training to give people knowledge and skills that will lead to good paying jobs, reduced government dependence, and brighter futures for all. Perhaps her most important “titles” are those of Christian and mother. Now a grandmother (and a “mom” to numerous others that refer to her as such through her mentor work), her life continues to grow. As a member of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, her walk with God continues to grow and her faith is continually deepened. Throughout life, Cindy has had success and set backs as a small business owner, she understands the plight of the homeless as she has experienced such firsthand in her life. Cindy has been married, widowed and has seven children and three wonderful grandchildren and it is about the future of our country. As a parent and grandparent, citizen of this country it is extremely important that we look beyond our life and remember that this greatest gift of God called the United States of America must be preserved for future generations. Cindy feels it is worth fighting for and that is why she is seeking to serve in the US Congress. Today, Cindy Werner is asking for your support, asking that you join her in moving Congressional District 4 forward towards a brighter day. If you are tired of waiting and waiting for change, then join us! If you are tired of things not getting better in Congressional District 4 then join us!
