Why should people vote for you? I believe there has been no real representation in terms of engagement and communication with constituents, and advocacy of issues most important to them, like job creation and funding and improvement of public education.

The Island Packet is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
