To the editor:
The next primary election is almost upon us and I would like to encourage citizens to vote for Mary Stewart for the Iowa State Senate Democratic candidate on Tuesday, June 5.
Why Mary Stewart? We need a person who truly cares about the people in our district that encompasses Wapello, Jefferson, Van Buren and Davis counties.
First, Mary listens to people. She began her campaign for the Iowa Senate a year ago, and has taken the time to attend public meetings in cities and counties in order to understand what the local issues are in each of the four county areas. This builds relationships already.
Second, Mary is a leader. She leads by valuing the people around her, and would be a true public servant working for the common good.
And finally, Mary is a learner. I have seen her consistently asking questions, researching critical topics, and meeting at various locations in our four county area.
There is no doubt Mary Stewart has the energy, conviction and vision to become our next State Senator!
This four-county area deserves a candidate who is a listener, a leader, and a learner. For too long, our needs and concerns have been ignored. We need a voice for our rural area and cities in the Iowa State Senate.
Please vote for Mary Stewart for the Iowa State Senate Democratic candidate on Tuesday, June 5!
