Vote for the candidates that will work for us

SheltonJuly 13, 2014 

It is time to listen to the voices of the very competent, well educated, and dedicated women running for office in our community. Kathy Haig our current State representative, Irene Bowling challenging Tim Sheldon, and Tammy Newton for state House. These very concerned, and knowledgeable candidates are ready to tackle the really important issues that so many of our elected officials tiptoe around. Special Interests are not on their priority agenda.

Irene Bowling hit the nail right on the head when she asked the other candidates at the candidate forum, “Why haven’t the big companies and super rich been made to pay their fair share of taxes? Why has their tax rate been reduced while the difference to be made up, falls on the backs of the already stressed middle class and poor?”

Kathy Haig has made the schools a very high priority and has worked very hard to help them get the money appropriated for education.

Tammey Newton also has the funding of K-12 schooling high on her priority list, and keeping college tuition costs in control.

Vote with your mind and evaluate what you want our elected officials to hold as their highest priority – us or special interests. The saying, ”If you want something done, give it to a busy woman,” is appropriate.
