A Bold Step Forward

Thank you.

Thank you DavenportProgressive. I am a single mom and while I have a good job now, this wasn’t always the case. I know that in rural areas, people who qualify for low income housing can’t even take advantage of it because it isn’t available. We need to look at the reality of life in rural and economically challenged areas.

Duty to my resposibilities

Hello Jerry.

I know that you were upset that I couldn’t attend your county convention that was located an hour and a half from where I live. I explained to you at the time that not only was I the county Chair for O’Brien County, but I was also a delegate. I take my responsibilities seriously and believe to this day that my choice to follow through on my duties verses trying to make a mad dash to the county conventions was the best choice.

Almost all of the conventions in my 39 county district were being held at approximately the same time so I would have only been able to make it to 1 or 2 conventions. If you say that it was a bad choice, then, had I gone to conventions, it would have made more sense for me to attend the conventions in the largest counties if you think the purpose was for name recognition. Instead, I found surrogates and sent information to them. You are the only county that that had a problem with me fulfilling my responsibilities on that day.

I think that most people appreciate that I drove just over 48K miles across the district and attended as many county events that I could fit in when the Chairs gave me enough notice to get them on my calendar.
