Community View | Study the candidates, and vote your core values
It's way past time that we acknowledged that we live in a place where people like Paul Gosar and Sonny Borrelli can be elected to "represent" us. Do either one of these people represent the values you want to see moving our community into the future? Have you taken a real look into the "values" they support?
I'll leave that investigation to you.
I'm more concerned about how we're going to have access to water. I'm more concerned about how we're going to create jobs that will provide living wages for our local citizens. What concerns me the most are the factions within our community that only seek to divide without putting any effort at all into proposing viable solutions. Why do those who seek to tear down gain so much attention? And why do those who are trying to build up our community and fight against the dangers facing us face so much opposition?
As each of you investigate your choices as you decide who will best represent you, consider this: Which one of these candidates will consistently choose the option that is most compassionate and life-affirming? Which one of these candidates do you feel in your heart really sees you as the person you are?
Think about what I am saying. Ask yourself: "Does this candidate represent my core values?"
"Does this candidate offer viable solutions to the problems I see facing our community?”
These are questions only you can answer. You have the means to make in-depth investigations. I trust you to make the best choice.
