“Why should people vote for you?” The Daily Voice posed that question to me, among others, as part of a candidate profile the online publication put together.
Because it’s such an important question — and one that many people have asked along the campaign trail — I wanted to share my answer with you. Here’s what I said:
I think the most important thing is that people vote for the candidate who they feel will best represent them — the candidate who they trust and who embodies the values they believe our elected leaders should uphold. I’d like to think I am that person.
Throughout my near decade of public service, and during this campaign for state Senate, I have conducted myself with character and integrity, and remained focused on working in a bipartisan manner to address the critical issues facing our great state. I’d like to think I have earned the public’s trust, and that they see in me a leader and community advocate with a record of accomplishments and caring outreach.
While we have much to be proud of, there is still a lot of work ahead of us. As your state Senator, I will work tirelessly on your behalf and always put public service above politics.
