There are three terrific Democratic candidates running in the 42th district. We have an opportunity to elect hardworking, community-minded representatives.
Satpal Sidhu has an impressive work background in education, agriculture, business, job creation and engineering. Education with the opportunity of learning job skills is his priority.
Joy Monjure's background is in agriculture. She has a 23-year history in our county public works department. Joy has a passion for local water resources and issues.
Seth Fleetwood's shown his concern for protecting our drinking water quality and for the environment while serving a combined 12 years on the county and city councils. He is a business owner, lawyer and former fisherman. Creating quality, local jobs is one priority.
I am impressed with the candidates' focus - education, transportation, infrastructure, jobs, environment. They commit to stimulating our economy.
Familiarize yourself with these candidates. Go to events, ask questions, listen to their answers. Put a face to their names. The primary election is important; the ballots will be arriving soon. We need you to be informed, to be active and to vote to change the direction I believe we are presently headed - from one of "no" politics to one of listening and reaching out to get things done.
