Vote Dawson, Howe-Pullis, Selcer, Sund
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Joan Howe-Pullis, Letters to the Editor
I’m supporting all for their dedication and desire to make sure all voices are heard, their willingness to cross party lines, and to serve the public with fairness and compassion. Amy Dawson’s incomparable legal experience runs the gamut from construction law to community advocacy, ensuring all children are not denied health care access because of their disabilities. Yvonne Selcer is a champion for women, educational reform, repealing business taxes for a more competitive Minnesota and safeguarding great care for the elderly and the disabled. As a former small business owner, volunteer in the ministry, and activist for Out-Front Minnesota, Joan Howe-Pullis understands the value of connectedness and how it translates into creating what she describes as a “peaceful, productive community” that can only be accomplished through “collaboration.” Sharon Sund is a wife, mother, small business owner and scientist, whose goals are the goals of the nation, to protect Social Security and Medicare, to create 21st-century jobs, invest in education, and “fight for fairness.”
There is a national consensus of support for advocacy on behalf of children, the elderly and disabled, pay equity and equality. All these women are in sync with a majority of Americans who want financial reforms, investment in transportation options and less polarization.
In the run-down of the 2014 Legislative session, Jenifer Loon voted for one outlier in an otherwise ensemble of all partisan nay votes. Likewise, her Republican counterpart in Congress, Erik Paulsen, is MIA when it comes to working for everyone’s best interests. Government for the few runs both their legislative priorities, as is the case with Selcer’s opponent, Kirk Stensrud, who hasn’t changed; he’s still a one-note guy working on behalf of businesses: this year it’s for builders against mandatory sprinklers in million dollar homes.
