For too long I have felt that my values are not represented by the current office holder for State Senate District 15. I now have hope as I support and vote for educator Janice Marchman. This is a newly drawn district as a result of the recent Statewide redistricting process. This increases my hope that we can actually elect Janice to represent us in a meaningful and effective way.
Janice is a problem solver, community leader, union member, experienced teacher and a real go-getter. She has been meeting and listening to citizens and elected officials all around the district for months now. Janice is a proponent of women’s reproductive rights, affordable housing, healthcare, protecting the environment, expanded rural broadband access, and fair and equal pay for all. She believes in accessible and responsive government. She supports main street businesses, fire prevention and recovery, and workers’ rights.
I enthusiastically endorse Janice’s campaign and ask you all to exercise your hard-earned right to vote. Ballots come in the mail mid-October.
