I had the opportunity to meet with Libby Mitchell. What impressed me about her — she listened to me. She asked questions to help her better understand my concerns.
She has the respect of her counterparts, because they have elected her to leadership positions. She stays in the background and doesn’t take credit for the successes that come from her efforts.
The economy is in a shambles thanks to the trickle-down policies created by the Republicans. We need to elect a governor with a strong background in the Legislature in order to address the financial problems that confront us.
I expect our elected officials to work together to solve the problems in the best interest of all the people. Mitchell is an energetic problem-solver with integrity. That is exactly what we need.
Libby Mitchell is ready on day one. No on-the-job training is needed.
