Vote for Joe
If you have a phone number, listen to the radio, read the paper, watch TV, or have a mailbox, then you probably know that Tuesday, June 3, is primary day, when voters have an opportunity to select candidates to run for local, state, and national office.
In my district, those in my registered party will be selecting a candidate to run for State Senate. I’ve previously written that I vote pro-life, and my choice in this contest is clear. I’ll be supporting Joe Childers with my vote. His Web site might not be the hippest and I might have a hard time remembering how his last name is pronounced (it’s with a long i, like “eye”), but he’s a good man. The Corridor Business Journal recently named him in their 40 Under 40 list of influential business leaders, his family has been honored as community volunteers by a local television stations, and he’s pro-life. If you live in Iowa Senate District 18 and will be voting in the Republican primary, then I urge you to vote for Joe, too.
