Mother plugs daughter
Here are a few of my reasons I am asking people to vote for my hard-working, honest daughter.

Faith has the ability to relate to her 91-year-old grandmother's needs down to her 6-year-old son's.

Faith grew up in various work occupations of the family including, but not limited to, tour guide, heavy equipment operator, carpenter, rancher, power fence designer for wildlife control, volunteer mother at McNeil school and a member of Eastland Volunteer Fire Department.

First encounter I had with Faith's opponent was at the ARC when I went to pick up my mother-in-law. Faith's opponent said I should buy Doris some ice cream to sweeten her disposition.

Second was my call to her regarding a complaint by a neighbor about us snowplowing our drive in the winter before the borough maintenance people arrived. She said the neighbor had called her several times and it was nice to hear our side. Does the telephone only work one way?

Third time was when Faith's opponent sat in my kitchen and asked me how much money did Eastland Volunteer Fire Department need? She assured me she could get us the funds, yet, she voted no on Grace Merke's motion for $10,000 for EVFD.

The fourth time was at the last road service area meeting in Homer. She was there representing the school teachers of Voznesenka to have their long hill sanded before 7 a.m. when the roads were icy. Her concern seemed to be for only one group of people. What about the other schoolchildren who depend on maintained roads to reach the school bus?

Don't all the voters deserve the same consideration as a few select group?

As Faith Schade's proud mother, I am asking the voters to "Have faith in your assembly."
