Likely we have all been told, “Don’t waste your vote. Instead, check the candidate’s history and passions to see if he/she stands for the things you value.” Well, I am writing to share information about Richard Rottkov, Democratic candidate in House District 32. Richard is a strong environmentalist. Like me, he cares about keeping our ocean clean, keeping it free of medication, plastic bags and other trash. He is the standard-bearer for clean air, earth and ocean. He believes in open spaces and a trail system that allows you and me to walk or bike safely. And he is passionate about our next generation and the quality of education we provide. I think one of Richard’s strongest pluses is his willingness to talk with you, not at you.
Don’t waste your vote. Instead check the candidate’s history and passions to see if they match yours, as Richard matches mine.
