House District 36

I am not someone who is outspoken about anything political, in fact lately I have been less than eager to read, talk or listen to what politicians have to say but I do because I will be voting on November 8th. Recently I received a flyer where one Ketchikan candidate chose to speak negatively about another candidate. No where on this flyer did he tell me anything about himself, just two sides of negative words about someone else.

Ketchikan is better than this. Let's not play the cruel games we see played daily from the Presidential candidates, let's be better. Let's be kind, let's be respectful, let's model to our kids how candidates should act.
