She’s voting for Halverson in District 51B
To the editor:
The election between Laurie Halverson and incumbent Doug Wardlow in House District 51B is an important one for our community. In Wardlow’s own words, “people will have a choice between two philosophies.”
Wardlow’s philosophy has been extreme and political. In his two years in the Legislature, Wardlow has voted with his Republican Party leaders on almost every issue. He has refused to compromise with the other side of aisle, and famously said during the state government shutdown that “now is not the time to compromise.” This despite the fact our state was in complete gridlock.
Halverson’s philosophy is one of common sense as opposed to political extremism. Her priorities are jobs and the economy, quality schools, and working together across the aisle to get things done.
I don’t think our community wants someone who will always vote the party line – that’s clearly not always going to be best for the district. Some common sense would do our Legislature good, especially given all the gridlock we have seen lately.
I’ll be voting for Laurie Halverson.
