VOTE: For the helpers

Print Article

Itís refreshing to see a political candidate, (or seasoned politician), who actually gives back to their constituents rather than the perennial outstretched hand. Rebecca Schroeder has been traveling to Washington, D.C., for 10+ years to fight for childrenís health care. Not just for her own son but for all children. She cares deeply about health care for the children of Idaho.

Judge John Mitchell (nonpartisan) has passionately been administrating the Mental Health Court in our county for many years. Itís not easy and it takes personal time and commitment to support his program. He saves lives, families, children and he saves the county/state thousands of dollars each year by offering successful alternatives to incarceration.

Iíll be voting for Rebecca and John and others who have shown a real commitment and sacrifice to help others.
