I don’t get it. Pam Cunningham is the Republican endorsed candidate for The House of Representatives District 53A, right? But she drives a Prius, she is on a school board and she works as a nurse for a charity organization.

I am impressed by her achievements and I think it is time for something new and refreshing. — Jerry Palesh, …

Instead of complaining about what was wrong, Pam set out to bring the diverse groups together and work toward solutions. The solutions that emerged were made stronger because Pam brought multiple sides …
