I know District 1 of the county has had a long-term commissioner which lends well to my campaign slogan "NEW VOICE CLEAR CHOICE". I know the long-term commissioner hand picked and introduced my opponent early on at a county commission meeting. But I liken my campaign slogan, “NEW VOICE CLEAR CHOICE” to a pond of water sitting stagnant. The pond has become stagnant, murky and cloudy. Life is removed from the pond. But when the pond takes on fresh rainwater, oxygen is renewed; the pond becomes a welcoming sight to humans and animals alike. The pond is fresh and transparent, bringing to the surface new life, new direction. And so it is with new voices in politics. The new voices are the fresh rainwater bringing to the surface new clear choices. Offering fresh, new direction and life to politics, to government decisions. And bringing the conversation of those government decisions to the surface for all people to see, to understand, and to participate in.
