Pick Shea

 

Bob McCaslin is stepping down as our state senator due to ill health; he will be sorely missed. But we should not replace him with leaders of yesterday who will only bring in failed solutions from before. We need a leader who is actively presenting solid answers to the problems vexing our state, one whose leadership skills are making a difference today.

Before constitutional and fiscal restraint became the vogue ideas to endorse, Matt Shea, our 4th District representative, was a consistent voice of both. He is a staunch supporter of fewer taxes, less government and more freedom, whose stronger position will only be a boon for those of us who value our freedoms.

There are those who will insist on keeping Matt in the House to keep us “represented” in the House. The extremely brief time we will be represented certainly is secondary to having the right person in this position at this critical time in history and the right person is Matt Shea.
