I have been thinking how I can honor former Rep. John Moyer best, and I believe it is by the way I vote and how I evaluate candidates. Moyer was a kind, gentle man who could reach across party lines to draft legislation that was best for the public. He knew his community and was active in his community.
The problems that are before us are neither Republican nor Democratic: They are people problems that need solving. Solving those problems requires individuals who listen to others and are willing to work with others to draft legislation. It’s kind of like what you try to teach children who are in kindergarten. Can they play well with others? Can they listen to other people?
I want legislators who serve their community and actively try to make this a better place to live for all concerned.
I believe that politics is the art of the possible, and that individuals can make a difference. Join me in electing people who are willing to listen, can work with others to draft legislation that will benefit all, and who have been and are actively involved in their community trying to make this a better place for all constituencies.
