Kriss Marion Will Bring Energy to the Job
September 24, 2020
I am concerned about the political climate of our country right now, with all the division and animosity that has grown between its citizens. In our country’s history, democracy has always worked well despite, and maybe even because, people have always had different opinions and taken different sides on important issues. Our many opinions give way to a broader picture, leading to a self-correcting system, where people express their views strongly but then come together around shared values while showing respect to fellow citizens. But lately, we seem to have lost sight of the fact that differing viewpoints are essential for a bigger picture, and we are losing our ability to work together. Our system will work, but it is time we relearn how to work with it.
With that in mind, I have considered carefully who among our local candidates will help us achieve the ability to work together again. The thing I like about Kriss Marion, who is running for State Assembly, is that she has a strong grasp on the issues confronting us today, issues that are important not only to our environment, but also to the needs of the people whom our country relies on to provide food, goods and important services. But more than that she reaches out to all people regardless of their political positions and she appreciates well the average person who is the backbone of the country.
I am impressed by her energy and willingness to go anywhere she can to make an impact by having conversations with people. When talking with her, I understand that she is a person who is as deeply passionate as I am about the issues I care about and would be one to show up every day to get the job done.
