Every year we hear about politicians who claim they want to go down to Springfield and fix the problems that have plagued our state for many years. Usually it is just political rhetoric, but this year I believe we have a candidate that can truly make a difference.
Laura Fine, candidate for state representative, is an individual who I believe stands out from the rest.
She’s not a career politician; she is a mother, a teacher and a neighborhood volunteer. She’s not running for office for personal gain, she is doing this for the community that rallied around her and her family with they needed it the most.
She is doing this for the right reasons, which is to represent the people, not the special interests. She knows that our state needs to get its fiscal house in order and that is why she wants to review the state budget line by line to remove unnecessary and wasteful spending so we can preserve funds for our most needy.
I hope that we will be lucky enough to call Laura Fine our new State Representative this November.
