As a citizen who fought against a sprawling rural city fifteen years ago in the Seven Lakes region, I am grateful we killed the code that allowed it. But it’s clear we haven’t even begun to address our housing challenges and the ridiculous sprawl across the land. So when an election comes up, I want to know who to vote into leadership.
I care about women’s reproductive rights. I care about the erosion of civil norms and the conflagration of an us vs. them mentality that gets nothing done and, instead, threatens our very democracy.
I’m also the wife of a veteran and watching him have to fight to get the medical care he deserves is making me sick, and threatens his life! And don’t get me started on the ridiculous dearth of mental health resources.
Watching our police officers have their hands tied by well meaning but misguided legislation as a knee-jerk response to legitimate civil rights issues is maddening!
Having just struggled to find housing my family could afford and helping a friend through a long-running homelessness crisis makes me all the more aware of the challenges faced by our middle- and lower-income citizens.
I called Clyde Shavers and the conversation lead me to wholeheartedly support him for the position of state representative for the 10th Legislative District.
He recognizes all of these challenges, their complexity, and the need to bring all interest groups to the table to resolve them.
Our communities deserve somebody with Clyde’s background. I believe firmly that he is the right person for the job.
