Mussman is in this for us, not herself

Success - Article sent! close

I have lived in my neighborhood association as an original owner for 35 years. I am realistic about the complicated issues we face as a nation and a community.

I met Michelle Mussman during one of her committed walks through our neighborhood and district. The issues are great nowadays and it is refreshing and unique to witness door to door contact from our state representative. I was surprised and grateful that she took the time to listen to me. She noted my concerns and I found her to be committed to us and our needs.

I feel like she is a neighbor that relates to me AND a leader who is trying to make the best choices to get our state going back in the right direction. I know now that she spends many hours each week talking to people at their doors and spending hours following up on peoples' concerns. She's in this for us, not for herself.

I know that a lot of people have met Michelle when she walks door-to-door or at events, but I don't know if everyone realizes the effort she puts in 24/7.

I want to encourage my neighbors and people in this district to choose her to be state representative in the fall. We do not need people who have been in office for years or who can't relate to our needs. We need selfless, honest, true leaders like Michelle.
