It used to be that if I looked for a doctor or dentist I looked for one with years of experience. That was the one who was best qualified to treat me. Now, because of the pace of new information, I look for a recent graduate of medical or dental school if I want to receive the best treatment.
The same principles now apply to public servants. It used to be that the long-serving representatives had the best opportunity to help our area get what we need and want. But that’s no longer the case. Now, we need new ideas -- ideas that come from the citizens, and to get that we need new representation.
A representative with experience is good, but not if it’s the same experience year after year. We need someone who listens to the electorate in this fast changing world. We need a representative that knows that 2012 is different from 2010, different from 2008, different from 2006.
We need Greg Duckworth to represent District 104. Please vote for Greg Duckworth to represent us so we can have someone who listens to our ideas, wants and needs. I’m voting for Greg and I hope you do too.
