Support Joan Howe-Pullis

As a high school student, it sometimes feels like my voice goes unheard by current office holders once they find out I’m only 17 and am unable to vote for them. That being said, I make my voice heard in the only way I can:  by staying engaged, speaking out for the issues I care about and encouraging others to vote for candidates who will listen to the wants and needs to the whole community, not just those who vote. Joan Howe-Pullis is committed to giving all Eden Prairie residents a voice in the State Capitol.

I met Joan while I was campaigning for the Safe and Supportive Schools Act. Joan’s desires to listen and understand everybody, even those who she disagreed with, was inspiring. When Joan told me that she was running for state representative, I was ecstatic. I know she is the best person for the job. Now, more than ever, we need representatives who seek to understand both sides of an argument, make objective decisions, and most importantly listen to each and every person they represent.

Many other high school students have expressed the same sentiments to me. they are upset by the lack of consideration paid to them by current politicians, and want someone who will take it upon herself to listen to the opinions of everyone. The fact many fail to realize is that the decisions we make today affect our tomorrow, and failing to heed to the opinions of America’s future will prove to be disastrous for the children of today when we become the teachers, business owners, parents and minds of tomorrow.

When you go to the polls on Nov. 4, I humbly ask that you help give us a voice by voting for Joan Howe-Pullis.
