It is always good to see a candidate who is not afraid to debate, speak her mind and give voice for us at a town hall meeting or a TV interview. You have shown an exemplary standing in all these areas leading me to believe my support is best placed with you. I served as a businessperson, cultural leader, and board member in this Kentwood community for 25 years, and I have even had the privilege of helping to advise some people in government today. Many forget where they came from and the people they represent.

Because of the moral integrity I’ve seen in you while working on the many projects we have completed; I want to let you know you can count on my vote. This is a personal endorsement from me and my family and not the Museum board or staff though I’m sure they back you as well.

Good luck with the Campaign!
