What I’m voting for
To those who say: “I can’t believe you would vote for Trump, well, listen up! I am not voting for him.
I’m voting for the Second Amendment. I’m voting for the next Supreme Court justice. I’m voting for the Electoral College, and the republic we live in.
I’m voting for the police, and law and order. I’m voting for the military and the veterans who fought and died for this country. I’m voting for the flag that is almost always missing from the Democratic background. I’m voting for the right to speak my opinion. and not be censored.
I’m voting for secure borders. I’m voting for the right to praise my God without fear. I’m voting for freedom and the American Dream.
I’m voting for good and against evil. I’m not just voting for one person, I’m voting for the future of my country! Who are you voting for?
A Democrat for Dotterrer
When we vote we should focus on the individual who is the candidate and not on the “Democrat” or the “Republican.” I am a Democrat who strongly supports Dave Dotterrer for county commissioner.
Dave is someone who wants to unite people in our county, not divide them. For example, he has talked with law enforcement officials and community organization leaders to see how together they can help individuals in trouble. He is focusing on the homeless and small businesses to insure their economic stability. Dave is a policy maker, not a politician. He is a thoughtful, proven leader whose goal is to bring people together by working hard and solving problems.
So don’t automatically look at the ballot for the Republican or the Democrat. Look for the individual who most relates to what you feel is important. To me, that person who will bring us together is Dave Dotterrer.
Terrie Martin: the people’s choice
Looking out for the people of Jackson County comes naturally to Terrie Martin.
In 2007 the county commissioners defunded the Southern Oregon Historical Society, which honors “the pride and pain of people” of the Rogue Valley. Terrie helped save it, and served on its board for years.
Her family business, D&S Harley-Davidson, organized the annual event to raise money for local women needing mammograms, and set up Bikers With Heart, a charitable foundation for local children who need medical help, from experimental treatments to wheelchairs.
Now Terrie is running for county commissioner, and committed to improving emergency protections for the people of Jackson County. She has first-hand experience of the devastation caused by the Almeda fire: her Harley-Davidson business was leveled.
High on her agenda is upgrading our system for emergency alerts, to reach everyone via area television, radio, personal phones, and a website. She has my vote!
