Ahern can make a difference


Although The Spokesman-Review dismisses John Ahern’s achievements for the years he spent as a state representative, his voting record stands as an excellent representation to his constituency. He pushed through a felony DUI bill passed in 2007. He was instrumental in getting the Veterans Home established in Spokane. He prepared the necessary groundwork to get the pedophile bill, H.B. 1352, that was finally passed in 2012. He assisted in passing two House resolutions, one for the Honor Flight for Veterans of World War II and two, honoring Eva Lassman, a victim of the Nazi war machine, for her work with children in various schools.

Ahern is now running for Spokane City Council. His experience, dedication and accomplishments for a better quality of life for all should not be ignored or disdained. He can and will make a difference. He worked for the people of Spokane as a legislator for the past 10 years, and will definitely make a difference for the people of Spokane as a council member.

I urge you to vote for John Ahern for Spokane City Council in November.
