My fellow voters: Are you concerned by the near zero ratings of our local legislators on the issues of education and conservation of natural resources? Are you also concerned by the lock-step support of our extremist governor?

If so, a remedy is as close as the polling booth. I encourage your support of David Schwanke, Democrat for Senate District 26 and Anne Dorney, Democrat for House District 86.

Both of these individuals are caring, independent thinkers who will serve our communities and state honorably and well.
