Support Joan Howe-Pullis
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Elected Officials & Candidates, Joan Howe-Pullis, Letters to the Editor
It is with much enthusiasm that I support the candidacy of Joan Howe-Pullis for state representative on Nov. 4, 2014. We first met three years ago when we were volunteers at Pax Christi Catholic Community. Joan was in many volunteer positions simultaneously. Joan brought innovation, a capable “Can Do” attitude and muscle to the job to be accomplished which will stand her in good stead at the State Capitol. Joan’s ability to juggle many responsibilities at the same time keeping competing interests happy was impressive. Again, a required skill at the State Capitol.
Joan’s passion for women’s issues both large and small, assures me that she will be the needed watch for women and children’s economic and social well-being in the state of Minnesota. Women and children need a strong voice when education and health-care policies are formed. Disagreeing without being disagreeable is the hallmark of accomplishing legislation. Joan has that skill.
Joan has been a small business owner so knows the hazards and happiness of running a business. She is acutely aware of the impact of taxes on small business owners, will champion their case at the State Capitol. She knows firsthand the importance of a robust economy and will work to make Minnesota an economic leader.
In this era of vitriol in the legislative process it behooves us as stewards of our state and country to send people of courage and character to represent us. Voting is a sacred right and as my mother said to me many years ago, “If you fought as hard as we did to get the vote, you would never think lightly of it.” So go to the polls on Nov. 4 and vote for Joan Howe-Pullis.
