Endicott fights for change

The question for my family in the choice between John Lovick and Irene Endicott is: Are we better off than we were two years ago? That’s easy to answer after sitting in traffic every day on roads that have had no improvements for a 20 minute commute that now takes 45 minutes and last year took 30 minutes. Our property taxes keep going up with no mention from Mr. Lovick of relief. When my neighbor found a violent, offensive book (“Nathan’s Run”) in our elementary school, Mr. Lovick didn’t even have the courtesy to respond to his request for help (our other representative and senator did).

My family needs tax relief, solutions to traffic congestion, protection for our children (especially in light of the recent attack on a girl trying to get to school) and we can’t wait two more years. We talked to Irene Endicott when she came to our door. She listened. We trust her to work for solutions to the problems hurting our working family and she will help parents trying to raise quality kids.

We’re tired of no results, especially when the protection of our children is in question. After talking with Mrs. Endicott, we believe she will fight for change that will help our family, protect our children and improve our community.
